Austria's Daniel Rezaei will be the front runner on Day 3 after he bagged over one million chips when play came to a premature end.

45 players will return to compete at Noon on Sunday, 17 July, with the likes of Pavel Plesuv, Romain Lewis, Pierre Calamusa, Martin Zamani and Adrian Mateos expected to be hot the heels of Rezaei when the official chip counts are provided.

Throughout the day, the likes of Michael Gathy, Jason Koon, Phil Ivey, Joe Cada, Chance Kornuth, Joao Vieira, Erik Seidel, and Paul Volpe all hit the rail, with many more notable names also unable to progress to Day 3.

PokerNews will as always be on hand to continue to provide all the action when play resumes.
