Linde is a mixed games specialist on the hunt for his first WSOP gold bracelet and Engel will try to win his second WSOP title of the 2021 WSOP after taking down Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo just last week.
Negreanu had a rollercoaster Day 2 with several chip swings coming late in the evening. After building up his stack over the course of the day, Negreanu was on the wrong end of a four-way pot that brought him near the brink of elimination, but he soon found his way back again and ended the day with a stack that is just below average. Negreanu will return tomorrow to hunt for his seventh gold bracelet after already cashing three times at the 2021 WSOP.
The winner will receive $170,269 and all remaining players are guaranteed at least $5,627.
Day 3 will restart on Tuesday, October 12 at 2 p.m., and the 27 players will return and play until there is a winner. Blinds will begin in Level 26 with pot-limit blinds at 10,000/20,000/20,000 with limits at 20,000/40,000. Levels will once again be 60 minutes on Day 3 with a 15-minute break every two levels and a dinner break to be determined.
