End of Day 3

39 players have bagged for Day 4. A full recap will be available shortly.

Simonian Stuns Kim in Wild Fashion

blaisebourgeois • Level 31: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

With just three hands remaining in Day 3, Wooseok Kim open-jammed from early position and John Simonian snap-called from the big blind with just 50,000 fewer than Kim.

John Simonian: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Wooseok Kim: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Kim received the dream {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{9-Spades} flop to have Simonian drawing to just two outs. Simonian was halfway out the door on the {5-Clubs} turn.

The river, however, was the {q-Hearts} sending the table and onlookers into a frenzy while Kim buried his head in his hands.

Though Kim was able to spin up with {6-}{4-} vs. {3-}{3-} in the following hand, he was not able to bag as his {10-}{3-} failed to hold vs. {7-}{6-} on the last hand of the night.

Anthony Spinella

Anthony Spinella opened under the gun for 650,000 and Mengchao Yu shoved his remaining stack of 2,925,000 from late position.

Spinella thought it over for about 90 seconds before eventually making the call.

Mengchao Yu: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Anthony Spinella: {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

Spinella would spike two pair on the {5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{a-Spades} flop before the {k-Hearts}{10-Spades} completed the board, sending him to over 20 million and sealing Yu's fate.

Andrej Senic: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
