Day 3 of the Main Event started with 154 players and concluded with 51 after 8 hours of play. Shadaf Hadaya, who's playing his first ever EPT, is the new chip leader with 1,237,000 chips - about 200k more than his closet opponent Matthieu Herve.
Matthias De Meulder, Sandra Naujoks, Vanessa Rousso, Fabrice Soulier and Freddy Deeb were all sent packing during Day 3, which means that there aren't any familiar faces left in the tournament. But of course it does not necessary mean that the rest of the tournament will be boring. A first prize of €770,000 is up for grabs and all of the remaining players are guaranteed €13,500.
We will be back with another update tomorrow.
