Yingui Li is one of two unknown players to enter Day 3, with the other being the chip leader Andrey Andreev.
Li is from China and will enter the third and final day of play with 791,000. He only had $16,478 in live tournament earnings before this event started, and that means the €86,800 he's earning already is by far his largest cash result of his career. Previously, Li had four results on record for between $2,600-$5,400.
Two of Li's results stem from Li's performance in poker tournaments in Macau. Another is from Las Vegas, and then the fourth is from the France Poker Series Monaco €1,100 Main Event that took place during this festival last year.
