2017 WSOP Main Event: Day 3 Winners And Losers

2017 WSOP Main Event: Day 3 Winners And LosersDay 3 of the 2017 WSOP saw a total of 2,572 players return to the Rio in Las Vegas, but by the end of play just 1,084 remained, all of which are now guaranteed a minimum of $15,000 for making it thus far. Of course, all sights will instead be set on making it all the way to the final table where the payouts range from $1 million all the way up to $8.15 million for the ultimate champion.
Leading the field at the close of Day 3 is Patrick Lavecchia on a 1.522 million stack, followed by Pawel Brzeski (1.56m), Antoine Saout (1.529m), Jeremiah Fitzpatrick (1.523m), and Derek Bowers (1.376m). Commenting on his progress through the tournament so far, Poland’s Brzeski stated:
“Of course it feels nice to be second in chips, but we still have more than a 1,00 people left, so it doesn’t mean much. But I guess more chips is more life in tournaments. I can lose some flips and still be alive, so that’s always nice.”
Also surviving Day 3 with their Main Event hopes intact was Sofia Lovgren, Charlie Carrel, Jared Jafee, Greg Mueller, Matt Glantz, Live Boeree, Felipe Ramos, Melanie Weisner, Scott Seiver, Scotty Nguyen, Kathy Liebert, and Barry Greenstein, to name but a few. Belgium pro Kenny Hallaert also progressed through the day, after which he tweeted:
“Made it to the money in the Main Event for the 3rd consecutive year! Bagged a stack of 1M25 with average around 335k. #WSOPMainEvent”
Amongst the recognizable pros eliminated before the money bubble burst was Brian Rast, Cary Katz, Mike Matusow, Adrian Mateos, Doug Polk, and Jason Mercier. They were joined on the rail by four prior WSOP Main Event champions, namely Joe Hachem, Johnny Chan, Greg Raymer, and Tom McEvoy.
Day 4
The remaining players will return to the playing area later today at 11 a.m., so don’t forget to check back here tomorrow for your daily update.
