After three starting days, a field of 766 strong showed up for Event #3: €1,350 Mini Main Event No-Limit Hold'em at the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe. 153 of them are still left in contention to capture WSOP gold as well as the top prize of €167,056 to be awarded in King's Resort on Sunday, October 20.
Before the biggest slice of the €873,240 is awarded, the remaining contenders have to plow their way through an ultra-long day 2 in order to reach the final table. With Day 1's originally supposed to play down to 15% originally, a change by the hosts to stop at 20% instead means the money stages are yet to be reached. 115 out of 153 will receive a cash prize for their accomplishments.
The top three spots are nicely divided between the chip leaders of all three respective starting flights: Day 1b leader Pulkit Goyal (1,518,000), Day 1a boss Aleksandr Merzhvinskii (1,255,000) and Day 1c top stack Ismail Kalkan (1,239,000) will start the day on top. Plenty of notables still have a shot as well, with the likes of Asi Moshe (772,000), Shaun Deeb (736,000), Jeff Lisandro (640,000), and Robert Campbell (351,000) all in contention.
Cards will be back in the air at 1 p.m. and action will resume in level 16 with blinds at 5,000/10,000 and a big blind ante of 10,000. Levels will be 40 minutes throughout the tournament. Follow along with PokerNews for all the latest on the WSOPE from King's Resort in Rozvadov.
