The third day of the EPT Snowfest Main Event is now in the books. Alfio Battisti went out on the bubble when he went all in before the flop with AA and got called by Evegeniy Zaytsev's 33. The board ran out JA2 10 5. He's probably still thinking "Why me, ohh poker gods, why me?!". After that everyone was guaranteed at least €5k+ the action really started and at the end of a long, intensive day of poker 24 players still had chips left.
The top two players in the beginning of the day, Johannes Strassmann and Richard Toth (both Team PokerStars Pros) are among the 24 players who will return today to play day 4 of the tournament. However, only Johannes Strassmann will bring a decent stack with him to day 4. Chip leader is Allan Baekke, a PokerStars Player who has accumulated a monster stack of 2,687,000. He has almost double the stack of the man in second place, Brent Wheeler (1,361,000). It will be interesting to see if he will continue playing as good, focused and unafraid in Day 4 of the tournament. I mean, he's an unknown poker player who's getting close to some serious cash! It must be hard for him to ignore that!? We will have to wait and see I guess.
