Today's Action

When the day started, 79 players were back in the race but it would be Bernardo "Machadada RS" Rocha who became one of the first casualties after his pocket kings were cracked by"KingKomeron" on the turn. Pedro "PaDiLhA SP" Padilha came into today in the middle of the pack but made an early exit after he failed to win a race against dulek_jason.

Things didn't go well for the Day 2 chip leader "extasyman" throughout the day, they ended up finishing in 41st place when they jammed their pocket threes into the pocket jacks of "FullHouseDrop" just after the second break of the day.

Lucio "WizardOffAz" Lima chipped up at the start of the day and was even chip leader at one point but he went on a downwards spiral. In the end, he lost the rest to "Alvers2" when he check-shoved on the flop with straight and flush draws while "Alvers2" flopped top pair. Lima bricked the turn and river ending his Main Event run.

Andreas "Wiborg95" Wiborg busted Fellipe "FellipeD" Drapichinski with the latter being taken out by "Play4livin" a few hands later. Things sped up then as, Renan "Internett93o" Bruschi, "bianchettibh", and "sofronovtema" all busted before the final two tables were reached. From there, it only took two hours before the final table was determined with "Gabriellin" taking a the chip lead into the final day.

Plan for the Final Day

When the players return, they will play Level 50 (1,000,000/2,000,000/250,000), and play will continue until the WCOOP champion of the Medium buy-in Main Event has been crowned.
