After eight levels of play, 63 players remain from the 224 that started the day. Day 3 of the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS UK Main Event was action-packed even though the bubble was an undramatic one. Bagging a huge chip lead is Alex Foxen with 46,525,000 - the equivalent of 133 big blinds.

Foxen collected most of those chips when he eliminated Tobias Ziegler with aces against Ziegler's kings. By winning that pot of around 40 million, Foxen grabbed the chip lead and didn’t let it go. Trailing him by about 30 big blinds is Fadil Isufi (35,800,000) who eliminated Niall Farrell earlier in the day. Closing the podium in third place is John Haigh with 34,275,000 in chips.

Ryan Riess

Also through to Day 4 is 2013 WSOP Main Event Champion Ryan Riess (26,650,000). Riess had 36 million at his high point but unfortunately lost a big pot at the end of the day. Ioannis Angelou-Konstas was short at one point and had to shove with jack-six for his last 13 big blinds and managed to hit on the river to double up. After that he managed to ran his stack up to a healthy 92 big blinds (32,250,000).

partypoker is still represented by two pros, Kristen Bicknell (27,725,000) and Patrick Leonard (22,750,000). Bicknell spent quite some time on the feature table and managed to run her stack up to more than six times her starting stack on the day. Leonard started on a tough table but managed to collect quite a few chips to finish with a more than above average stack.

Other players also bagging today include Mohsin Charania (28,400,000), Michael Wang (21,575,000), 2018 WSOP Main Event ninth place finisher Antoine Labat (21,200,000), Max Silver (19,725,000), Sam Grafton (19,250,000), Dietrich Fast (17,275,000), and many more players.

Players who didn’t make Day 4 but did make it into the money include Andy Black, Preben Stokkan, Paul Michaelis, James Ablott, Tom Middleton, James Mitchell, Paul Nunes, Scott Margereson, Joao Vieira, Gianluca Speranza, Manig Loeser, Christopher Andler, Ivan Deyra, Guillaume Diaz, partypoker pro Natalia Breviglieri, Niall Farrell, Michael Tureniec and more unfortunate players.

Players will return at noon to play Level 25 which features a small blind of 175,000, big blind of 350,000 and a button ante of 350,000. Eight levels of play are scheduled again but might be subject to change.

The completed board was down {5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Russell Betts, playing from early position, was heads-up against Richard Hoadley in the small blind.

There was around 5.5m in the pot, and Betts had 6.2m behind him. Hoadley had a stack worth 13m and moved all in, which Betts snap-called.

Hoadley revealed {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a bluff and Betts had hit a straight on the river with {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. Betts raked in the pot to move up to 18.5m and Hoadley was left with 7m.

Vernon Takes Lambert Down

poolshir • Level 24: 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

Christopher Vernon raised to 625,000 from under the gun and action folded to Louis Lambert on the button who three-bet by putting almost his whole stack in, leaving himself behind with 75,000. Vernon snap-called after the blinds folded. Lambert tanked, using a time bank card, trying to catch a pay jump. In the end, he called with his last chips.

Louis Lambert: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Christopher Vernon: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}

The board ran out {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{j-Spades}{3-Diamonds} to not provide any help to Lambert as he was eliminated. Lambert managed to pick up the pay jump though as he finished in 72nd place.
