24 players left, 21 make the money. That is the equation heading into day 4 of the WPT National Grand Prix de Paris which resumes this lunchtime.
Organisers had expected the bubble to burst yesterday but it was a day for the short stackers who managed to fight another day. With over $20,000 on offer for a min-cash we can expect the opening stages at the Aviation Club to be a cagey affair. One man unlikely to have to worry about making the money is chip leader Vasili Firsau. The Belarusian enjoyed a fantastic day, knocking out a string of high profile players including Roger Hairabedian, Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott, David Boyaciyan and David Peters. He'll start the day with 756,000 chips. The only other man to crack the half million mark was Peter Apostolou on 548,000. There are a number of notable names dotted amongst the final two dozen including defending champion Matthew Salsberg (218,500), Jason Koon (206,500), Kara Scott (145,000), Marvin Rettenmaier (125,000) and Mohsin Charania (102,000). 1 Vasili Firsau 756,000 2 Peter Apostolou 548,000 3 Jean-Noel Thorel 458,000 4 Kimmo Kurko 355,500 5 David Hu 291,000 6 Darko Stojanovic 275,500
