Returning with below average stacks are French rapper Bruno Lopes (101,800), Dominik Nitsche (92,100), Tony G (47,200), ElkY (33,900). and fresh form a deep run at the Partouche Poker Tour, Briton Tom Alner (24,600).36 of the day three starters will go home disappointed with just 27 players set to make the money.
