Dia 3 Terminado
Day 3 of the PokerStars Championship Bahamas saw the final 125 players from a field of 738 return to action. It was an action-packed day with dozens of eliminations. After five 90-minute levels of play, just 32 players remain with Nick Maimone, who turns 30 tomorrow, and his stack of 1.75 million leading the way.
One year ago, Maimone took down the 2016 PCA $25,000 High Roller for $996,480, and now he’s looking to add the PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event title to his résumé, which currently boasts $1,880,865 in live earnings. Maimone’s only other six-figure scores include $633,022 for placing15th in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event, and $112,972 for finishing runner-up to Jonathan Duhamel in the 2015 PCA Event #31: $5,300 No-Limit Hold’em.
Others still in contention for the $480,012 first-place prize, who’re guaranteed to take home at least $14,760, are Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier, who sits in second with 1.333 million, as well as 2012 PCA champ John Dibella, 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event third-place finisher Cliff Josephy, and 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess.
Those are some big names, but they don’t stop there. Others surviving the night were EPT11 Grand Final champ and 2013 WSOP Europe Main Event winner Adrian Mateos, PokerStars Team Pro Online and Twitch star Jaime Staples, and 2015 Global Poker Index Player of the Year Byron Kaverman.
Among those whose dreams were dashed on Day 3 were Will “The Thrill” Failla (118th – $7,260), 2010 PCA champ Harrison Gimbel (108th - $7,260), 2016 WSOP Main Event 12th-place finisher Mike Shin (93rd - $9,120), and former NFL player Richard Seymour (89th - $9,120).
Also falling was Daniel Colman, who earlier in the week finished third in the $100,000 Super High Roller for $759,660 and fourth in the $50,000 High Roller for $341,240. Colman’s demise came when he called off with pocket nines only to see Scott Stewart hold with pocket kings. Colman added another $11,560 to his bankroll for his 59th-place finish.
Others who bowed out before the end of the night were former EPT champs Arnaud Mattern (85th - $9,120), Mike “Timex” McDonald (52nd - $11,560) and Davidi Kitai (45th - $14,760), 2013 WSOP Main Event fourth-place finisher Sylvain Loosli (48th - $11,560), Team PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein (37th - $14,760), and WSOP bracelet winner Pascal Lefrancois (39th - $14,760), who lost the biggest pot of the tournament thus far when his ace-king failed to get there against Maimone’s pocket queens late in the evening.

In the last hand of the night at his table, PokerStars Team Pro Jason Mercier eliminated Smit Trivedi to give himself a terrific chance of running very deep in this inaugural PokerStars Championship here in the Bahamas.
It was Trivedi who moved all-in for a total of 208,000, and Mercier called it in late position.
The board of saw Mercier fill up on the river and send Trivedi home in 33rd place.
We await the bagging of each players chips at the end of the day.
The tournament staff just announced that the remaining players will receive three more hands before bagging and tagging for the night. Stay tuned for a list of survivors complete with chips counts, as well as a full recap of the Day 3 action.

The Double Up
Ronan Gorey moved all in for his remaining 148,000 and was called by Jason Mercier.
The board ran out and Gorey got the double up after locking up the hand with a flush on the turn.
A few hands later, John Engledow raised to 35,000 from under the gun and Ronan Gorey moved all in for 248,000. Engledow called.
Gorey needed to hit a queen but was unable to get there when the board ran out , sending the PokerStars Online Qualifier home towards the end of Day 3.
A relatively small ball pot got really interesting on the river late on Day 3 as Jaime Staples and Scott Stewart did battle.
We joined the action on a flop of , with Staples facing a bet of 45,000. He called. The turn of saw both men check, but on the river, Stewart bet 99,000 - a pretty clear tease that he had the gutshot required to complete the straight.
"I should snap call just for that!" laughed Staples. But was he 'bound' to call?
"Maybe you're just on a different level to me." said Stewart.
Those words gave way to a Staples fold, and Stewart stacked up the newest chips to add to his mountain.
Adrian Mateos raised to 22,000 from early position and Cliff Josephy defended from the big blind to see a flop.
Josephy check-called a bet of 22,000 and then checked for a second time when the appeared on the turn. Mateos bet again, this time 80,000, and it did the trick as Josephy released his hand.
Yakov Onuchin got his last 110,000 or so in before the flop holding . His monster was in terrible shape as his neighbor Rasmus Glæsel had . The board ran out and Onuchin hit the rail. Down to 34 players in the Main Event with three more days of play.
James Juvancic got his chips in the middle with and was in bad shape against the of initial raiser Rodrigo Cordoba. The board came and Juvancichit the rail.
