Day 3 Highlights
Amsellem came into Day 3 with one of the shorter stacks but he was one of the chip leaders within the first two levels after the double knockout of Jaime Cervantes and Raymond Attal. Amsellem stayed active all day and played a role in several knockouts. He entered the final table with over 18 million in chips and finished off the day above 20 million.
Scafini, previously the Day 1d chip leader, remains in the hunt and will return on Monday with a big stack after eliminating Tahar Said to end the night.
Earlier in the day, Gregory [Removed:372] was out in the fourth level of the afternoon after being eliminated by Nagygyorgy in a three-way pot. [Removed:372] came into Day 3 as the chip leader, but he couldn’t make a run at the final table.
Eugenio Peralta was among those that got off to a fast start, thanks in part to the rare double cooler against Alexandre Sette and Xavier Rouayroux. Sette picked up queens and Rouayroux picked up kings, but they both ran into the aces of Peralta. Peralta was one of the early pacesetters on Day 3 and he ultimately parlayed that into an 11th place finish.
Other players falling short of the finale include the up-and-coming Moroccan Mehdi Chaoui, WSOP bracelet winner Motoyoshi Okamura, and €100,000 Mystery Bounty winner Imad Derwiche.
