WSOPE Day 3 Main Event: Brits Chris Moorman And Max Silver Lead

Day 3 of the 2011 WSOP Europe started at midday with 116 competitors still left and by the early hours of the morning when play ended just 25 competitors remained.
The prestigious event may have moved from England to France this year, but nevertheless, when play broke with blinds at 5k/10k plus a 1k ante it was the Brits who lead the way on Day 3 with Max Silver on a 1,780,000 stack  and online sensation Chris Moorman on 1,769,000.
As the competition moved closer to the bubble with 64th place collecting €20,000, Barry Greenstein found himself in the unenviable position of being the 65th place bubble boy.
Despite cashing in at the event, start of the day chip leader Constant Rijkenberg will also feel somewhat disappointed at crashing out of the competition in 49th place (€21,475), his downfall exasperated by a massive hand he lost against Chris Moorman.
Other players eliminated on Day 3 with at least some monetary reward for their efforts included Victor Ramdin in 59th (€20,000), Barney Boatman in 51st (€21,475), Hoyt Corkin in 42nd (€24,000), Freddy Deeb in 39th (€27,000), Liv Boeree in 36th (€27,500), and last woman standing Maria Ho in 27th place for €32,000.
Despite the high profile eliminations, the WSOP Europe Main Event is still host to a whole slew of top pros with their sites set firmly on a gold bracelet and the €1.4 million top prize. These include Shawn Buchanan (1,267,000), Patrick Antonius (696,000), Jake Cody (522,000), John Duthie (314,000), Erik Seidel (242,000), Tony G (226,000) and John Eames (210,000).
Day 4 of the 2011 WSOPE Main Event gets underway later today at 1400 CET at the Hotel Majestic Barriere and will then play down to its final table of eight.
