Reigning champion Martin Jacobson kicked off the third and final starting day by calling out "Shuffle up and deal". In total, 3963 players bought in for $10,000 each to create the largest single flight in Main Event history!

After registration closed, WSOP staff announced that a total of 6,420 players had entered the tournament and created a massive $60,348,000 prize pool - of which the top 1,000 players will receive a minimum cash worth $15,000, and the winner is set to take home $7,680,021!

Back to Day 1C. Jacobson, who was supposed to play Day 1A but had to cancel due to illness, didn't do so well this year in the Main Event. He didn't get anything going and was eliminated by Garret Greuner after the dinner break. Although the most recent Main Event champ is lost, several other former Main Event winners made it thought the day: 2013 Champion Ryan Riess (108,800), Jamie Gold (81,000), Joe Hachem (63,500), Peter Eastgate (22,100), and Phil Hellmuth (79,725). The champions will be joined to Day 2 by the likes of Daniel Negreanu (73,825), Allen Cunningham (65,025), Bertrand "Elky" Grospellier (22,375) and Michael Mizrachi (64,350).

John Gorsuch ended the day as the chip leader with 198,100. Close behind him at the top of the chip counts are Zarik Megerdichian (180,400), James Juvancic (166,350), Timo Pfutzenreuter (150,075), Jeff Griffiths (140,400) and Craig Varnell (140,000).

Its nice to see over Six Thousand entries in this years Main Event and there is over $7,000,000 to the winner. Lots of big names left in and it would be nice to see Phil Hellmuth have a real run at winning this

Some names I know, some names I don't know - last year's winner could have timed his health better... I guess he got something nasty by either food or the air-conditioner. Nobody should ask for seafood in Las Vegas nor turn the AC high enough to get cold from it.
