Day 3 of the European Poker Tour Season 12 Prague Main Event – a tournament that attracted 1,044 players and created a prize pool of €5,063,400 – saw 218 players return to the Hilton Hotel on Sunday looking to make the top 151 and secure a payday.

After five 90-minute levels of play, the money bubble had burst and just 67 players were left in contention for the €921,540 first-place prize. The man best positioned to make a run at it is Canada's Abbas Moradi, who bagged the chip lead with 1.384 million.

Others who bagged big stacks were Preben Stokkan (1,175,000), Hossein Ensan (1,120,000), Vlado Banicevi (1,096,000), and Samuel Vousden (1,010,000).

Among those to fall early were Fabrice Soulier, David Vamplew, James Akenhead, EPT11 Malta champ Jean Montury, Team PokerStars Pro Chris Moneymaker, Team Online's Mickey Petersen, and EPT7 Prague champ Roberto Romanello.

Then in Level 17 (2,500/5,000/500), Spain's Jesus Muriel Gracia was automatically all in from the big blind for his last 5,000. Ukraine's Anton Sulymka called under the gun, and one by one the rest of the players got out of the way.

Gracia: {3-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Sulymka: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

Gracia was behind but drawing to two live cards. The {j-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} flop was disaster for Gracia as Sulymka made a pair of tens. The {9-Clubs} turn sealed Gracia's fate, and he left empty handed in 152nd place, thus ensuring the remaining field at least €8,910 in prize money.

From there the in-the-money-finishes began to mount including those of Vitaly Lunkin (150th - €8,910), Rainer Kempe (144th - €8,910), who notched his third EPT Main Event cash in a row, Mike "Timex" McDonald (139th - €8,910), Team PokerStars Pros Johnny Lodden (117th - €10,280) and Matthias De Meulder (74th - €11,540), EPT11 Grand Final champ Adrian Mateos (81st - €11,540), and Bryan Paris (79th - €11,540), who suffered a particularly bad beat to bust.

It happened in the last level of the night when preflop raising war resulted in Paris getting his stack of 325,000 all in way ahead of the start-of-the-day chip leader, Gleb Tremzin.

Tremzin: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Paris: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}

Paris was a huge favorite, but the {8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} flop gave Tremzin a huge heart sweat. The {k-Clubs} turn wasn't what he was looking for — though it gave him two more outs — but the {6-Hearts} river was!

Among those to advance to Day 4 are Sebastian Gohr (868,000), Niall Farrell (828,000), Sam Chartier (817,000), Gavin O'Rourke (634,000), Iaron Lightbourne (550,000), Kitty Kuo (340,000), and the last Team PokerStars Pro in the field, Ivan Demidov (157,000).

Day 4 will kick off at Noon local time on Monday with the plan of playing down to the final 16 or to the end of Level 24, whichever comes faster. In addition the €10,000 High Roller will begin at 12:30 p.m. local time. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be on hand to capture the action from both events, so be sure to join us then.

Tjauw Foe Suffers a Big Bad Beat

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante
Clyde Tjauw Foe
Clyde Tjauw Foe

Action folded to Clyde Tjauw Foe in the small blind and he opened for 19,000. His neighbor Slaven Popov made the call from the big blind.

The flop came {6-Spades}{9-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and Tjauw Foe made a bet of 21,000. Popov called in position.

The {7-Spades} fell on the turn and Tjauw Foe gently tapped the table. Popov made a bet of 32,000 and Tjauw Foe thought about it for some time. He grabbed 32,000 and just mili seconds before he made the call, he grabbed two 25,000 chips and raised to 82,000 total.

Popov tanked for quite some time and eventually shoved all in for 322,000 total. Tjauw Foe set the record for the fastest call ever.

Clyde Tjauw Foe: {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
Slaven Popov: {7-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

Tjauw Foe was in good position to eliminate his opponent and just about double up, but fate had a different plan: {10-Hearts} on the river. Tjauw Foe angrily cut out 322,000 and moved them left. The Dutchman himself has about 70,000 left.

Reard Busts in the Final Stretch of Day 3

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

Ghattas Kortas just raised to 17,000 and Alexander Reard moved all in for 156,000, two seats on his left. The action eventually folded back around to Kortas, and he called right away.

Kortas: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Reard: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The board ran out {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades}{A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and Reard was knocked out.

De Meulder Is Done

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante
Matthias De Meulder
Matthias De Meulder

Team PokerStars Pro Matthias De Meulder has bust in 74th place. De Meudler had been nursing a short stack for an hour or so and pushed all-in with {K-Hearts}{10-Clubs} only to run into the {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}. The {6-Spades}{7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} board didn't even give De Meulder a sweat and he headed to the exits, via the cashier, into the Prague night.

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

Terence Stevens opened the button for 23,000 and small blind [Removed:365] shoved all in for 72,000. The big blind Iliodoros Kamatakis shoved over the top all in for 395,000 and action was back on Stevens.

"I really think I got him" Stevens said pointing to Kamatakis. "I don't think I got you" Stevens said to [Removed:380], "but I think I got him!"

Stevens eventually called.

Terence Stevens: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}
[Removed:365]: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Iliodoros Kamatakis: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}

The board ran out {A-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{8-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Kamatakis shouted "Yes Baby! Come On!"

Sulymka Wins a Race to Double Through Foe

Nível 19 : 4,000/8,000, 1,000 ante

They say that in order to win poker tournaments you need to win your coinflips and that is exactly what Anton Sulymka has just done.

Sulymka was all-in for 99,000 chips with {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} and Clyde Tjauw Foe sat with {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} in front of him, poised to bust his opponent. The door card was the {Q-Clubs} to gift Sulymka the advantage, and it was followed into view by the {2-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Spades}{K-Diamonds} to boost his stack past the 200,000 chip mark.
