The four-time WSOP bracelet winner is top of the chip counts going into Day 3 with a stack of 893,300, almost 200,000 ahead of his closest rival, Italy's Antonio Buonanno who has 704,500. Former billards champion and new PokerStars pro Toni Judet is in third place, just behind Buonanno.Jack Ellwood leads the British challenge on 306,000 with Luke Schwartz (232,500) and Charles Combes (180,500) still in with a decent shout. It's chip and a chair territory for Surinder Sunar though who'll be heading back to the Kursalon Palace tomorrow with just 34,500 chips.Start of day chip leader Laurence Houghton busted out midway through Day 2 after running into a string of big hands. Joining the Londoner on the rail were Tom Dwan, Barny Boatman, Stephen Chidwick, Lex Veldhuis and Boris Becker.All 80 remaining players are guaranteed at least an €8,000 pay day with the eight making the final table taking home at least €60,000. They'll all have eyes on the big one though. The winner will earn a whopping €700,000 and the all important EPT title.Join us tomorrow to find out whether Daniel Negreanu is any closer to joining Roland de Wolfe and Gavin Smith in the exclusive triple crown club.
