Day 3 of the record-breaking 2016 PokerStars.es EPT Season 13 Barcelona €5,300 Main Event started off with 294 players who were already in the money when play resumed. Due to the new payout structure, the bubble broke late on Day 2, guaranteeing the remaining players at least €5,630. With the min cash in the bag, everyone in Casino Barcelona had set their sights on the life-changing first price of €1,122,800.
After five levels of 90 minutes, it was Belgium's Anthony Chimkovitch who bagged the overall chip lead with 1,825,000. On his way to his chip lead, Chimkovitch eliminated Chance Kornuth in spectacular fashion. Kornuth made a move with his pair of queens. Chimkovitch, however, held a pair of kings and knocked out the American high roller in one of the biggest pots of the day.
The day started at a fast pace right away. With no pay jumps in sight, players busted in quick fashion. Marko Neumann, Martin Acre Llobrera, Ilari Sahamies, and longtime Day 2 leader Ognyan Dimov were among the first to fall. Mike McDonald, who received the EPT 12 Platinum Player of the Year award yesterday, saw his run in the Main Event come to an end when his pair of nines wasn't good against Vasili Firsau's pair of aces.
Connor Drinan, Govert Metaal, Leo Margets,Kitty Kuo, Harrison Gimbel, Sam Chartier, Kimmo Kurko, Gleb Tremzin, Darryll Fish, and Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody all failed to make Day 4 as well.
Long time Norwegian professional and former EPT champion Andreas Hoivold saw his Main Event come to an abrupt end in a huge pot versus Marco Caza. Hoivoid's pair and flush draw didn't get there against Caza's top two pair, skyrocketing Caza to the top of the standings. Caza finished the day in second place, bagging 1,520,000.
Besides Chimkovitch and Caza, a total of 98 players made their way to Day 4. Team PokerStars' last standing man is none other than Jason Mercier who sat at the feature table for a long time. Mercier bagged 1,006,000, making him a dangerous contender going forward.
A lot of other notables still have a shot at the seven-figure price, including Nuno Capucho (1,375,000), Adam Owen (857,000), Bryn Kenney (728,000), 2016 November Niner Vojtech Ruzicka (680,000), Sam Grafton (650,000), Byron Kaverman (442,000), Georgios ZIsimopoulos (438,000), Jason Koon (424,000), Mark Roovers (392,000), and Eugene Katchalov (215,000)
