Josias Dos Santos has been eliminated in 32nd place for $3,157. 

Dos Santos came into Day 3 with 990k and immediately doubled up through Abe Faroni. However, he couldn’t keep that momentum going and busted a half hour later. The details of his bust-out were missed as the focus was on a big pot brewing between Schuyler Twaddle and Chris McNally.

McNally opened the pot to 85k in middle position and was flatted by Sameer Batra on his immediate left. Action folded to Twaddle in the small blind who 3-bet to 280k. McNally then put in another aggressive action with a 4-bet to 670k. Batra folded out of the way and Twaddle elected to leave the call (~1.4M behind).

Flop: 9♥10♦8♥ Pot: 1.5M


Turn: 5♣ Pot: 1.5M

Twaddle had just under a pot-size bet and moved all-in for 1.43M. McNally thought for awhile before getting out of the way on the extremely scary board. Twaddle is up to ~2.9M after taking down the size-able pot with no showdown.
