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.

Day 3 of the Master Classics of Poker Main Event is running at the moment. 40 players have chips left and only 4 players need to hit the rail before the tournament has reached the money. The plan is to play the field of 40 players down to a final table, which will be played tomorrow, but of course anything can happen in the poker world.

In a quite big lead is the American Poker Pro Brandon Cantu, 30, with 666k chips. Cantu is a very experienced poker player who has, for example, two WSOP titles and a WPT title on his resume. But that doesn't mean that he can kick back and relax as there are quite a few good players with plenty of chips left.
