The WPT Venice Grand Prix Main Event's third day is soon about to start and there are 27 players left. The one who will sit down with the largest stack today is Marcel Bjerkmann from Norway. His biggest tournament achievements so far came in 2010: a Master Classics of Poker title (Amsterdam), a Belgium Open Poker Championship title, and a second place in PokerStars EPT London/Season 7 UKIPT.
Anyhow, he has about a 50k chip advantage to his closest opponent Marko Neumann, and there are many good tournament players with plenty of chips left. In other words, it's still a long way to go for Marcel if he want's to take down his third major poker tournament. The winner will take home $302,065 and the money bubble will burst when 18 players remain. We will return with an update as soon as Day 3 is over.
