Day 3 of Event #43: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold’em has concluded and after ten hour-long levels of play, the start of day field of 149 was whittled down to just 17 players, who are playing for the $446,983 first-place prize and a WSOP bracelet.

Leading the way by a large margin is bracelet winner Michael Wang, who bagged up 24,300,000 chips, nearly double that of second place. Wang spent the majority of the day nursing a short stack, but after some timely doubles and a clash with bigger stack Edwin Lee, Wang found himself well ahead of everyone else in the chip counts. The American pro’s biggest lifetime cash was his bracelet win in 2015 in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $466,120, and he will be looking to add a second piece of poker jewelry to his collection.

Wang is not the only bracelet winner left in the field. Bagging 13,325,000 chips was South Korean bracelet winner Sejin Park. Park is now enjoying his fifth cash of this year’s World Series Of Poker. Park’s bracelet came in 2019 when he took down the $400 No-Limit Hold'em-Colossus, beating a field of 13,109 entrants to win his career-best score of $451,272; he now sits in the top three chip stacks going into Day 4.

Jonathan Dokler is the other bracelet winner still in the field. Dokler took down the $500 Kick-Off 2020 WSOP Online for his first WSOP bracelet, and like the two players above, will be searching for his second. Dokler bagged 12,875,000 chips and is another player who battled on the short stack for a good portion of the day. Patience paid off as he is now one of the top five stacks.

Not all bracelet winners were so fortunate during the day. Martin Jacobson (145th - $3,124) and Tuan Le (140th - $3,557) departed from the tournament quite early. Other notable players fell by the wayside as the day progressed such as Jeremy Pekarek (132nd - $3,557), Rafaelle Sorrentino (89th - $4,716), Niall Farrell (88th - $4,716), Antoine Saout (57th - $7,600), and Ralph Massey (23rd - $15,856).

Second in chips to start the day Sylvain Naets was coolered when his pocket kings ran into pocket aces and his tournament ended in 97th place for $4,081.

The other start-of-the-day chip leader was PokerGO commentator Jeff Platt who was more fortunate and able to find a bag for 8,075,000 chips at the end of the day. While most know Platt for his role in PokerGO, Platt has amassed over $300K in lifetime earnings, including 14 WSOP cashes. Platt spent most of the day steadily building his chip stack and never really dipped out of the top five in chip counts. Platt comes back with 26 big blinds and will be going for his first WSOP bracelet.

The action was picked up preflop when Matthew Raffoul raised to 600,000 and Bryan Walden went all-in for his remaining 4.525 million in chips.

Sejin Park then four-bet all in putting both players at risk and action was on Raffoul who folded. It was heads-up with Walden at risk.

Bryan Walden: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Sejin Park: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Walden needed help on the board to stay alive, but it ran out {j-Spades}{7-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} which was no help and Walden who was eliminated.
