When 63 players sat down at the tables and Day 3 kicked off, the tournament director had a plan to get as close to 12 players as possible. But in the end there were still 24 remaining players, and the man with the biggest pile of poker chips was the same as when the day started, Philipp Gruissem.
With 1,060,000 chips Gruissem has about 100k more than his closest opponent Matthew Salsberg and more than 3 times the average stack. It will be interesting to see what poker stars such as Theo Jorgensen, Juha Helppi and Joe Serock will do to stop Gruissem during Day 4. If Gruissem continues to play this well he will definitely make it to the final table with a healthy stack.
We will be back with another brief update tomorrow!
