The 379 players who exchanged €3,500 for 30,000 tournament chips and the dream of becoming a World Poker Tour champion have been reduced to just 19 and amongst them is Britain's Sandiep Khosa.
Khosa (pictured; photo credit PartyPoker Blog and Francesco Rizzo) will return to the Seven Casino in Amneville armed with 227,000 chips, which places him 17/19 but that will not phase the vocal Brit. Day 3 was a real rollercoaster of a ride for Khosa who started with 76,700 chips and was down to less than 30,000 at one stage. He told me that he had initially failed to adjust to the very loose calling standards of his table but he stopped trying to bluff the unbluffable, got lucky a couple of times and picked up a few good hands.
Each of the surviving players have locked up at least €9,654 for their efforts this past week, which is made all the more sweeter for Khosa because he qualified for the €3,500 Main Event for a fraction of the cost through PartyPoker. In fact there are two other PartyPoker qualifiers still in the field, Jordane Ouin (273,000) and Anders Bisgaard (1,167,000). The latter is currently second in chips and paid only $46 to participate in this tournament!
Play resumes at 1200CET and will continue until only the final table of six remain. The schedule says five 90-minute levels are all that will be required, personally I think we will be wrapped up midway through the third level judging by how these guys and one gal approach the game. Only time will tell!
Good luck to everyone still in the WPT Amneville Main Event, especially Mr Khosa!
