WSOP 2014 Main Event: Day 3 Winners And Losers

WSOP 2014 Main Event: Day 3 Winners And LosersDay 3 of the 2014 WSOP Main Event started with 1,864 players but at the end of almost 10 hours of action 746 hopefuls were left, just short of the 693rd place money spot worth $18,406. The day also saw the number of players sufficiently reduced to close the Pavilion Room and bring the whole field under one roof at the Brasilia Room.
Losers
At the start of Day 3 five previous WSOP Main Event champions were still in contention, but eventually just Huck Seed (249,000 chips) remained with Ryan Reiss, Johnny Chan, Chris Moneymaker and Robert Varkonyi ending up on the rail. After his elimination Moneymaker, who now has gone eleven consecutive Main Events without even a cash, tweeted:
“Have 88 on 378 flop. Get it allin for big stack as money bubble approaches. #imout Thanks for all the support.”
Other top pros seeing their Main Event dreams come to a close on Day 4 included Antonio Esfandiari, Marvin Rettenmaier, Erik Seidel, Ole Schemion, Tom Marchese, Haralabos Voulgaris, Christina Lindley, and $50k Poker Players Championship winner John Hennigan.
Winners
When proceeding drew to a close for the night the blinds were 2k/4k with a 500 ante. Finishing Day 4 as chipleader was Andrew Liporace (1,128,000), followed just 1bb behind by Mehrdad Yousefzadeh (1,124,000), then Spain’s Raul Mestre (988,500). Commenting on his thoughts on the day, Yousefzadeh, said:
“I had Phil Ivey at my table all day. We didn’t play any big pots, we stayed away from each other. For the last nine years, most of the guys I’ve seen as chipleader on Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, they don’t make the final table. I’m just trying not to be that guy.”
Interestingly, Phil Ivey had started the Day 3 as chip leader on a  505,000 stack, but ended only slightly higher on 522,500 chips, good for 72nd place so far.
Meanwhile, Dan Smith (817k) ended the night in 15th, with other pros surviving on the day included Ali Eslami, Kenny Tran, Martin Jacobson, Eddy Sabat, Isaac Baron, Matt Waxman, Allen Cunningham, Daniel Alaei, Bryan Devonshire, Olivier Busquet and Maria Ho.
The final table is not expected to be reached until Day 8, but in the meantime the remaining final players will return to action on Day 4 when the money bubble will burst.
