Aussie Millions: Main Event Day 3

Aussie Millions: Main Event Day 3 0001

Day 3 of the 2010 Aussie Millions Main Event began with 83 players; by the end of the day, only 18 were still standing. The players got into the money in Day 3 as well, and 72 didn't home empty handed. The remaining 18 will come back on Friday to play down to the final table.

Joseph Sevian was the bubble boy of the event. The hand pitted aces against kings with both hands hitting their sets. Peter Jetten came out of the hand as the survivor and Sevian would hit the rail.

The third day of play saw plenty of highs such as the rise of Kosmas Dratsas, the resilliance of Steven Topakas who battled from the short stack all day to reach Day 4, and the remarkable play of two very talented women — Annette Obrestad and Jessica Dawley — who both made it through to Day 4.

Your overnight chip leader is Dratsas, following closely behind by Betfair ringers Obrestad and Sorel Mizzi.

Kosmas Dratsas - 1,792,000
Annette Obrestad - 1,711,000
