The third day of the World Poker Tour Venice main event was kind of slow and not as action-packed as one might have hoped for. The day started with 36-players and, after some hours of play, 18 of them were still standing when the tournament director called it a day. Mike Sexton, Kara Scott, Ludovic Lacay and Matt Salsberg all made it through the day with healthy stacks while Daniel "Jungleman" Cates, Liv Boeree and Marvin Rettenmaier were sent packing.
All the remaining players are now guaranteed a minimum payday of $7,975 each. The plan for Day 4 is to play down to 6 players, who will battle it out on the televised final table this weekend. It's very likely that one or two big names will make it there and battle for the first prize of $180,097!
