|Francesco De Vivo||559,000||253,000|
Play has now finished for the day with 60 players left with Italian Roberto Spada at the top on 1,441,000. The Italian won a huge pot to put him up to the million mark when he made a flush holding on a board and got paid off by Alessandro Fasolis' entire stack. This, combined with several decent sized pots put him ahead of Team PokerStars Pro Max Lykov to go into Day 4 as our chip leader.
Lykov remains in joint second place with 1,416,000 alongside Nicolas Yunis who has exactly the same amount while Paolo Rigano is in 4th place with 1,324,000. Other players still in the tournament the other former EPT winner David Vamplew (Lykov being the first) as well as former WSOP Main Event Champion, Team PokerStars Pro Joe Cada. They'll all join Ludovic Lacay, Fabrice Soulier and Richard Toth on Day 4 of this event as we play down to the final 24 players.
We'll be starting once again at 12pm (CET). See you then!
While everyone else was bagging and tagging, Max Heinzelmann had fired out 118,000 on the river of a board against Davide Toni. The Italian tanked for several minutes before folding and Heinzelmann turned over for complete air.
Toni gave the German a look of disgust while Heinzelmann simply began to stack his chips and tried really hard not to burst out laughing (it was a borderline failure).
Play has now finished for the day.
A short preflop raising war resulted in Cole Robinson all in with from the button against Max Heizelmann's in the cutoff.

Vegard Nygaard just doubled up his paltry 63,000 stack from the small blind through big blind Nicolas Yunis when the Norwegian's managed to river a straight against Yunis' on a board of . It's only a drop in Yunis' stack and Nygaard still has a short stack.
Exit 1: Kevin Vandersmissen has been eliminated after he reraised all-in with against Andrew Teng but found the Brit holding to eliminate him.
Exit 2: Muhamet Perati comes into Vandersmissen's seat, sits down and immediately moves all-in for about 130,000 over the top of Gerardo Godinez Estrada's opening raise to 25,000. A quick call from the Mexican with , Perati turned over and missed the board.
Exit 3: Former Snowfest runner-up Russell Carson comes in and sits down in the empty seat, Joe Cada and Ludovic Lacay both point out what had happened to the last two players in the last two hands. Carson moved all in from UTG with , Lacay quickly calls in the big blind with . The board comes and we lose yet another player.
Avoid that seat people...
Max Heinzelmann is back up to 550,000 after betting out over 100,000 on the river of a board, with not much more than that behind. Cole Robinson flat-called, but mucked his hand and dropped to 350,000 when Heinzelmann turned over for trips. He's at 550,000 after that.
