Ioannis Angelou-Konstas Dominates Day 3 of Caribbean Poker Party Festival’s $1,100 Millions Open

The 2017 Caribbean Poker Party Festival continues with its loaded with events schedule and the poker event everyone is talking about at the moment is the $1,100 Millions Open event which features a guaranteed prize pool amounting to $1 million. Day 3 just finished and the current leader in the temporary leader board goes by the name of Ioannis Angelou-Konstas from Greece. The player managed to amass a chip stack amounting to 71,800,000 during the third day of the tournament and this makes him the top player at the beginning of Day 4 of the event.

At the start of the action on Day 3, there were 135 poker players from around the world returning to their assigned seats and ready to conquer the top positions in the run for the big prize. The rapid game throughout the day, however, left only 26 of them at the end and they are the ones who are going to continue ahead to Day 4 of the major tournament. A total of 95 players received money for their performance after the money bubble burst around the 19th level of game.

Some of the players who had to leave the game before the end of Day 3 of the tournament were poker pros to the likings of Mike Leah from Canada who finished 32nd, partypoker sponsored pro Natalia Breviglieri, who was performing promising during Day 2, but finished 33rd, as well as the other sponsored by partypoker player Kristen Bicknell, who finished on the 84th position. Other players who could not make it to the fourth day of the tournament were Michael Watson from Canada, who also performed well during the previous day of the tournament, but finished 44th, and team partypoker online pro Louise Butler from Ireland.

Players Continuing ahead in the Big Prizes Run

As for the top positions on the leader board, at the end of Day 3, they were occupied by some of the most promising poker players present at the $1,100 Millions Open event. At the moment the runner-up position right below the current leader is taken by German poker player Paul Michaelis who has 68,100,000 in chips. He is followed closely by the third position which is reserved for another German player, namely Rainer Kempe. He is going to enter Day 4 of the tournament with a chip stack amounting to 66,500,000. As it could be seen the gap between the players’ chip counts is quite small and this could result in rapid changes of places during the play.

Pavel Plesuv is a poker player from Moldova who is currently occupying the fourth position on the leader board and he has his hands on 63,200,000 in chips. To round out the top five players in the poker tournament comes Canadian pro Vincent Tremblay who bagged 63,000,000 in chips and is one of the 26 remaining players who are guaranteed a minimum of $6,000 at the end of Day 4 of the tournament. The final day is scheduled to commence this Tuesday at noon and the lucky winner will be selected among the surviving players.
