One of the biggest prize pools in all of Las Vegas is ready to be paid out in a major way as Day 3 of Event 56 of DSE III is ready to get started. A stellar field of 40 players returns to play down to a champion after two long and grueling days of poker. Leading the way is Harsukhpaul Sangha, who brings a massive chip lead of 3,710,000 into play, almost double that of second place Adam Geyer.
There is a long way to go before the finish line hits in this event but Sangha is among the favorites to make it to today’s final table. Other major players who return for Championship Friday are Martin Finger, Justin Liberto, Harrison Gimbel, and Sam Chartier.
Like yesterday, all levels will be 60-minutes with a break every two levels along with a dinner break at some point midway through play. If yesterday was any indication, we are in for a treat here on Day 3 of what has been a fantastic tournament. The Venetian Poker Room blog will be here all day providing updates. Below is a look at the payouts for this event.
