Three days are in the books and three remain in PokerStars Championship presented by Monte-Carlo Casino® €5,300 Main Event.
A starting field of 727 runners has been reduced to just 45, so the tournament is well into the money with the current payout being €15,420. However, everyone has their eyes on the €500,800 top prize, and a number of top players remain in contention.
Stefan Schillhabel, Davidi Kitai, Sergio Aido, and French tournament legend Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier are all in the top 10 in chips. However, everyone's looking up at Frenchman Michael Kolkowicz, who has 1,445,000 as blinds and antes head to 5,000/10,000/1,000.
