At the start of the Day 3 who gathered 14 players, there were still two players left for the title, but Molissa Farber, the other feminine representative of the event, was eliminated at the 11th place.

Barry Hutter started the final table as chipleader ahead Jacob Bazeley, Jason Bigelow, Kenneth Gregersen, Michael Zucchet, Joseph Wertz, Matthias Bednarek, Philippe Clerc and Dana Castaneda. The final table guaranteed a minimum gain of $ 33,731 which belonged to Kenneth Gregersen. Two hands after, Joseph Wertz and Jacob Bazeley left the final table, on a winning hand of Jason Bigelow. Barry Hutter was eliminated at the 6th place by Castaneda, who for the occasion grabbed the chiplead with 4 million chips. The elimination of Philippe Clerc, the only French representative of the final table, of Michael Zucchet and Matthias Bednarek allowed Dana Castaneda and Jason Bigelow to meet in heads-up.
