The third day of the WPT World Championship has come to and end with about 45 players (WPT is still verifying the number of players). Michael Mizrachi, who lead the way into Day 3 with 428k, is among the players who are through to Day 4.

But he will "only" bring 171,700 chips to the tables when play continues again today. Isaac Haxton was in 5th place when the day started, but unfortunately nothing worked out for the American High-Stakes Pro as he was eliminated during the day.

Curt Kohlberg (picture), who eliminated for example Isaac Haxton during Day 3, now leads the tournament with 918,300 chips. In second place is no one else than Nick Schulman with 768k, followed by 3 other Champions Club members; Guillaume Darcourt (641k), Antonio Esfandiari (632,100) and Rinat Bodanov (624,100).

Apart from these well-known players there are quite a few others that still have chips legt and a chance of reaching the final table. Just to mention a few: Moon Kim, Barry Schulman and Steve O'Dwyer, Noah Schwartz and Sam Trickett.

We'll be back with an update tomorrow morning again. Stay tuned!

Game in Day 3 brought big changes in the top scenario, with Michael Mizrachi running now with less than 50% of the chips he had in the beginning of the last day. It will be tough to climb again to the top, once the chipleader Curt Kohlberg has now five times more chips than him and the top five is all with more than 600k chips (and these are also big poker names).

Esfandiari in with a chance - it's not often he does well in tournies.

Be good to see him final table.

As for early chipleaders, they rarely win a tournament.

some familiar names still in the hunt, i find that it is often such a value bet to place against the clear chip leader winning th tournament with some time left to go, even when heads up, chip leader who has say 5 even 10 times bigger stack can lose tournament very easily, but the odds for him winning are low...perfect lay bet
