Finnish poker player Aku Joentausta didn't let go of his lead during Day 3 of the Main Event when the field was narrowed down from 170 to 56 players. The young Finn played extremely well and it almost seemed like he took home every single pot. He will bring 1,039,000 chips today, ahead of the only other player with a seven figure stack: Emil Ohlsson, from Sweden, with 1,011,000.
There are a few big names left in the tournament that Joentausta and Ohlsson will have to keep an extra eye out for: Olivier Busquet (719,000), Calvin Andersen (744,000) and former EPT Champions Thang Duc Nguyen (774,400), Kevin Stani (680,000), Liv Boeree (279,000) and Sandra Naujoks (202,000).
By the way, for all tennis fans out there, Boris Becker made it through Day 3! The German tennis legend will bring 116,00 chips to the tables today (average stack: 488,500). No matter what happens next he has already scored his best EPT result to date! Good luck Mr. Becker!
