Day 3 of the Spring Edition of the 2022 WSOP International Circuit at the King's Resort in Rozvadov has concluded which has seen a day full of blow-ups and tantrums. The 57 players played down to the final table where nine competitors from six different nations will compete for the €160,500 prize. Each player has already locked up an entry to the WSOP Europe Main Event worth €10,350 and a minimum payout of €14,500.

Kosovo's Besnik Lalinovci currently leads the way with 6,200,000 chips while his compatriot Rama Mulaj is not far behind in third place with 5,200,000. Germany's Luc Ta is sandwiched in-between with 5,385,000.

German Vincent De Neve will be making his second appearance at a WSOP Circuit event final table on Tuesday, he finished 3rd for € 114,709 in the September 2021 edition.

Czech native Lukas Zaskodny is no stranger to the bright lights of the main stage at King's Casino but comes into the day 7th in chips and will need some early spin-ups to be within contention to claim the coveted WSOP Circuit Ring.

Action of the Day

Day 3 was jam-packed with drama with several blowups along the way. Coming into the third day with one of the biggest stacks was Daniele D'Angelo who lost the vast majority of his stack in the first three hands of the day when a bluff went wrong.

Martin Kabrhel proved to be a constant thorn in the side of many, but none more so than Nadir Kinno who had several battles throughout the day with Kabrhel. The Czech WSOP Europe champion amassed a huge stack to take the chip lead with three tables left to ultimately finish in 22nd place.

One of the most sickening bad beats occurred on the feature table where Jan van der Stroom's pocket aces were cracked by Alfredo Cuti's pocket aces. Cuti made a flush on the turn to eliminate van der Stroom who took defeat with humility where many others wouldn't.

Fausto Tantillo had a rollercoaster of a day and came into the session second in chips. He steadily grew his stack up to 5,000,000 chips before dusting them off in the space of a one hour level.

Symeon Alexandridis was the last casualty of the day busting in 10th place which was good for a cash prize of €12,000 and a seat at WSOP Europe Main Event in the fall.
