Day 3 of this year’s WSOP main event has finished with a number of recognisable faces still in with a shot at taking the $8,359,531 top prize including industry legend Doyle Brunson.
Having started that day with 1,753 competitors, the day’s action soon saw the field mercilessly cut with just 666 remaining after ten levels of play.Although poised on somewhat of an ominous number, the surviving cohort will return for Day 4 just 18 places away from the money.Breaching the one million chip mark and leading the final few during today’s session was Maxx Coleman. After bagging a 1,071,500 haul, the American grinder is currently on course to bank one of his largest live cashes to date.When the action resumes Coleman will face a tough test as the chasing pack is well stocked with sharks such as Vladimir Geshkenbein with 900,000 chips, Annette Obrestad holding 564,000 and defending champion Greg Merson on 390,500.Despite stating before the WSOP that he had no intention of playing in the main event, Brunson has managed to scoop 626,000 chips and finished yesterday among the top 50.
