Champion Club member Eric Afrait bagged up the largest stack for the second day in a row when Day 3 concluded with 18 players. Afriat, who won the recent Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown for $1,081,184, will bring 2,029,000 chips (400k more than his closest competitor) into Day 4 and has set up himself well to make a second WPT final table in a row.

Apart from Afrait, there are another three Champion Club members remaining in the mix of 18 players: Anthony Gregg (1.6m), Tony Dunst (622k) and Bobby Oboodi (525k).

The remaining players are guaranteed to take home at least $41,488 each. The six players who make it to the final table after today (Day 4) will be fighting for a massive $1,350,000 first place prize! You will find a final table recap here in the news section on Monday morning!

Eric Afait looks to have bagged himself a nice lead going into the final day. These are players who i am not familiar with but they all must be very good to get this far, good luck to all

It would be epic if he could get on second WPT final table in a row.

He looks like a nice guy and a good player.

Eric Afait will make the curse break I think, he is leading and hope he keeps the lead and goes to wins it, though several chip leaders got hammered at the late stage in the previous tourneys, so will be watching for him and waiting for him to wins it or go out as per the curse lol. Cheers keep us updated BRM!

With such a extreme chiplead it would require a lot of bad luck or bad play to bust before the final table.
But we have seen such things already.

I will never agree that luck has nothing to do with the poker game, it's true that on long term his contribution is very low but it's a component after all...
