WPT Seminole Hard Rock: 114 survivors at the start of the Day 3 of the Main Event
Since a few days, the Borgata Casino of Atlantic City has been the host of the penultimate stage of the World Poker Tour season 12: WPT Seminole Hard Rock Showdown. Numerous events followed one after the other since the opening of the tournament in March 27th of this year, but the Main Event has always raised the keen interest of the visitors. The event gathered 1,795 incomers during these three departure days. But at the beginning of the Day 3, there were only 114 players who pretend for the title and for the gain of more than $1 million promised to the winner. These survivors of the Day 2 are already in the money because the event guaranteed 170 paid places.
The field at the start of the Day 3 is composed by high society and familiar figures on the circuit. Richard Kirsh is the leader of the classification in terms of chipcount with 1,734,000 chips. He is closely followed by Matt Stout (1,402,000) and Daniel Navarrete (1,400,000). In the rest of the Top 10, we find Julian Thomas (1,199,000), Barry Hutter (1,120,000), Glenn Becker (1,105,000), Ryan Eriquezzo (969,000), Josh Kay (870,000), Elliott Zaydman (852,000) and Alan Percal (841,000). Other players such as James Calderaro, Matthew Jarvis, Noah Schwartz, Mohsin Charania or Jeff Gross are always in the running for a WPT title. The day was fateful for some great names of poker following the example of Jake Cody, Matt Salsberg, Ryan D'angelo, Keven Stammen as well as Guillaume Darcourt. As a reminder, the winner of this Main Event, whose buy-in has passed from $5,000 to $3,500, is going to pocket $1,081,184, while the runner-up of this poker tournament will have to content with $691,965.
