On Tuesday, the World Series of Poker Main Event continued with Day 3 from the Majestic Barrière in Cannes, France. The remaining 77 players of 420 played six levels of poker during the day, and by the end of the night, 24 players had chips left and Joseph Cheong, who finished 3rd in the 2010 WSOP Main Even, had the chip lead. Apart from Cheong, Jason Mercier and Phil Hellmuth made it through the day with healthy stacks. Other familiar faces to survive the day were, for example, Liv Boeree, David Benyamine and Andy Frankenberger.
Day 4 of the tournament will begin at 12:00 PM and the plan is to play down to a final table of eight (all finalists will be guaranteed €84,672). The remaining squad of players are already guaranteed to get away with €26k each, but of course that's peanuts compared to the top prize of €1,022,376.
