Event #3: €5,300 Mixed Max No-Limit Hold'em

Day 3 began with 16 players on 4 four-handed tables and was supposed to continue until only four players remained, but the day was still young when four players remained so the action continued until Dan O'Brien and Darko Stojanovic were the last men standing.

Play will resume at midday CET and Dan O'Brien (picture), of USA, will enjoy a 3-1 chip lead over Stojanovic from France. The two will play out the final 54 minutes of level 21 before playing 30-minutes levels after, according to WSOP's website. The winner will take home $188,160 and the coveted gold bracelet while the runner-up spot is worth $116,280!

Event #4: €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha

This tournament attracted 184 entries and, after 2 days of play, the final table is to be played today at 2pm local time. Here are the 6 finalists:
Seat 1: Jason Mercier - 81,500
Seat 2: Jeremy Ausmus - 203,000
Seat 3: Jan Jachtmann - 149,000
Seat 4: Juha Helppi - 227,500
Seat 5: Michael Schwartz - 39,500
Seat 6: Martin Kozlov - 127,500

As you can see above, there are some amazing players who will battle it out for the first prize of €70,324 and the WSOP gold bracelet! Juha Helppi (picture) will bring the largest pile of chips to the final table. The Finnish high-stakes legend, who has about $5 million in live tournament earnings, has finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 13th in WSOP bracelet events, so let's hope the poker gods help him win this one! 

Event #5: €2,200 No-Limit Hold'em

This event is one day old and 102 players remain out of 337 entrants that generated a prize pool of €647,040. Andrei Konopelko, finished ninth in 2013 WSOPE Event #2: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Reentry for €12,134, will lead the remaining players to Day 2 with 78,375 chips. Familiar faces that will join Konopelko at the tables later on today are, just to mention a few, Phil Hellmuth (picture), Liv Boeree, Jonathan Duhamel, Erik Seidel and Michael Mizrachi.

The top 36 finishers will receive at least €3,345, and each finalists (9-handed) will be guaranteed a minimum payday of €13,989. The winner will get €148,820 and a gold bracelet.

I bet Phil is loving this WSOPE cos the fields are that much smaller giving him great chances to extend his bracelet lead.
Plenty of top pros final tabling.

Yeah small fields are great for those "hall of famers", at this point I don't think money is the main motivation for some of the well-known pros, its fame.

Good luck to them though, I still love seeing them play on TV ^^

Still with the small fields, there are a lots of well known poker players playing, meaning they are going for the fame, or they are just degenerate gamblers. Big Smile

Also for Jason Mercier, i want him to not cash any events because in a competition with my friend all of them have him. I have Barry G, Ivey and some I chose that did not participate in the event!!

Anyway good luck hope Ivey gets a win, he finished 10th in the other event! Sad

Not a big buy in on those.... It's something I could afford if I had the chance to play with those guys! Although, the time you payed for airfare, hotel, eats,...and various other expenses, could easily double the buy in for the secondary event...

There's a WSOP tourney from Las Vegas earlier in the year being broadcast on TV right now, of the days from the event per week,.... At the start of the show there's a pic of Phil Helmuth in his earlier days celebrating what I think is his first bracelet. MAN was he skinny back then!!!

He's earned all that cash over the years and just sat around playing poker getting FAT.... Big Smile

It would be nice if Juha could take the PLO event, not sure about how many events he won but i think he almost participated to all, i mean you clearly see that he loves the poker game and thats always a big thumbs up for him.

Events 5 should be awesome to watch since PH is playing lol
