Day 3 Underway

  • Big Stax XXIII 500 Main Event 11:30 PM
  • Level 25 (20000/40000/5000)
  • Total Entries: 1070
  • Players Left: 23

Cards are in the air in the tournament area and there have been three eliminations in the first 10-minutes of play. Here’s the recap:

Augi Oliva is eliminated in 26th for $3,405.

Tom McMahon is eliminated in 25th for $3,405.

Joe Palma is eliminated in 24th for $3,812.

These players all started in the bottom 1/3rd of the remaining field and with less than 18 big blinds. Expect the action to slow a bit once some of the shorter stacks that were holding on for Day 3 either bust or establish themselves in the event. The stacks are very deep at the top with nine players starting more than 50 big blinds deep.
