The World Series of Poker is one of the premium poker festivals which has the potential to make many skillful players the next millionaires in the poker world. One of the opportunities which could make this happen is the attractive poker tournament which goes by the name of $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em MILLIONAIRE MAKER, guaranteed to catch the eye of every enthusiast seeking a new challenge during the festival.
The event just witnessed its third day of action and players are reduced to only 16. The 21st event of this year’s edition of the WSOP has a lot on offer and does not fail to produce its participants with the real chance to generate a considerable amount of money at the end of the poker congregation. Over the span of several days each and every one of the registered 7,361 players has the chance to showcase their full poker potential and make an attempt at outplaying the impressive field of players.
What makes this event even more attractive to the participants is the fact that they have the chance to play for a fair share of the guaranteed prize pool amounting to some $9,937,350. And this is something which has definitely drawn some of the most renown poker players present at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino which hosts the 49th edition of the WSOP.
Tournament Progresses One Step Closer to the Final Table
Some of them had to leave earlier than expected, and among them were promising players such as Stanley Lee, who reached as far as the 24th place at this very same tournament back in 2015. Kyle Hartree who also demonstrated considerable skills on the felt up to this point had to leave during Day 3, as well as Elio Fox who became the champion at Event #2: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Super Turbo Bounty.
He also claimed a runner-up position shortly after that at Event #5: $100,000 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller where some of the famous poker players made their first appearance at this year’s edition of WSOP. At the beginning of Day 3, there were some 155 players returning to their seats. The chip leader among them was Aaron Messmer who had a total of 1,089,000 at the very beginning of the action.
However, throughout the day he was pushed down on the unofficial leader board and even though he was one of the surviving 16 players at the end of it, he claimed the 15th position with some 1,295,000 in chips. With two days remaining until the final table and the riveting heads-up duel, players are more than excited to be among the few ones progressing ahead, as this means that they are better or at least luckier than most of the participants registered.
One of them placed a significant distance between the first and the second place on the rank list and that was Chad Hahn from Westfield, Indiana. He bagged some 6,525,000 at the end of the day and reserved a spot at the start of Day 4. The temporary runner-up position is currently occupied by Sean Marshall who has a total of 6,160,000.
They are followed closely by the third-place player Manuel Rivo who claimed 5,900,000 in chips. Poker action returns once again this Wednesday when Day 4 is going to reduce players even more, sifting them out for the final table.
