On Wednesday, the $10,000 buy-in, $10,000,000 GTD Wynn Millions continued with Day 3, which saw 162 players from a 1,328-entry field return to action. After five 90-minute levels of play, just 61 players remained with bracelet winner Anthony Marquez and his stack of 1.925 million leading the way.

Others still in contention for the $2,018,866 first-place prize are Ralph Perry (1.915 million), Anthony Huntsman (1.905 million), Santiago Soriano (1.785 million), and Maria Ho (1.735 million), who round out the top five counts.

They were joined by players such as Ilyas Muradi (1.7 million), Ari Engel (1.57 million), Toby Lewis (1.51 million), Thomas Boivin (1.205 million), Joe Kuether (1.14 million), Sandeep Pulusani (1.095 million), Tom Marchese (980,000), Frank Funaro (905,000), Andrew Moreno (890,000), Cliff Josephy (875,000), and poker power couple Kristen Bicknell (745,000) and Alex Foxen (440,000).

A $12,483,200 prize pool was up for grabs to the top 134 finishers, which meant 28 players left empty handed including Ema Zajmovic, Poker Hall of Famer Jack McClelland, bracelet winners Anuj Agarwal and David “The Dragon” Pham, Sergio Aido, and bubble boy Carlos Alvarado, who busted after running pocket kings into the two black aces of Foxen.

Some of those to cash but fail to survive the night were Robert Mizrachi (67th - $41,997), David “ODB” Baker (68th - $41,997), Jason Koon (79th - $38,179), Connor Drinan (82nd - $34,708), Benny Glaser (104th - $29,348), GGPoker Ambassador Daniel Negreanu (114th - $27,099), Poker Hall of Famer John Hennigan (119th - $25,091), 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess (124th - $25,091), and Chris Moorman (127th - $25,091).

As for Negreanu, he built a stack on Day 2c and was cruising for much of Day 3 until a big hand derailed him when his ace-king was beaten by ace-queen. Not long after, he was racing with an ace-queen of his own but failed to overcome the pocket nines of Scott Eskenazi. Losing that one left “Kid Poker” with a single ante, which he lost one hand later losing ace-five to ace-jack.

Just before the dinner break, Koon suffered a bad beat when he just called a preflop raise from Max Young with pocket aces. He then called a bet on a ten-high flop only to see the turn produce another ten. Young moved all in and Koon called only to see the former roll over ace-ten for trips.

While many dreams were dashed over the course of Day 3, there are still dozens of hopefuls each guaranteed a minimum $46,406 payday.

PokerNews will be back on Thursday at Noon local time to capture all the action, so be sure to join us then as the 2021 Wynn Millions rolls on.

Final Four Hands

AnthonyThompson • Level 20: 10,000-15,000, 15,000 ante

The tournament director has decided to end the tournament one level early tonight due to the hour-long bubble and announced the final four hands.

Engel Coolers Heckman in Straight Flush Over Straight Flush

AnthonyThompson • Level 20: 10,000-15,000, 15,000 ante
Andrew Heckman
Andrew Heckman

Andrew Heckman opened under the gun for 40,000 and then called Ari Engel's 105,000 three-bet from middle position.

The {3-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{k-Spades} flop saw Heckman check-call Engel's 95,000 continuation bet and then do the same for 160,000 after the {5-Hearts} fell on the turn.

Once the dealer completed the board with the {6-Hearts} on the river, Heckman moved all in and was snap-called by Engel.

Heckman rolled over {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for the six-high straight flush and thought he had won the hand until Engel rolled over {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for the seven-high straight flush, leaving him with just 30k.

A few hands later, Heckman lost his remaining stack and exited the tournament in 62nd place for $46,406.

Soriano Gets Big Value With Top pair

jeffmcmillan • Level 20: 10,000-15,000, 15,000 ante

Andrew Heckman raised to 35,000 preflop from the button. Santiago Soriano three-bet to 125,000 from the small. It folded back to Heckman who called.

The flop came {k-Spades}{5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}. Soriano led out with a bet of 95,000 and Heckman called.

The turn was the {q-Spades}. Soriano slowed down and checked, Heckman checked behind.

The {3-Clubs} completed the board. Soriano reached deep into his stack and procured a bet of 330,000. Heckman called after about 30 seconds.

Soriano tabled the {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades} which was the winner as Heckman checked his cards a few times and flashed a queen, admitting afterwards that he was surprised at Soriano's holding considered the large river bet.
