Day 3 of Event #47: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MONSTER STACK has come to an end and there are 20 players remaining. On top of the chip counts is Stoyan Obreshkov with 11,300,000.

Obreshkov came into the day with a healthy chip stack at 848,000 and maintained a steady pace throughout the day. In the last level, he picked up aces got involved in a big pot with Brandon Wise. He managed to get Wise to call all in on the river and took down a 6,500,000 chip pot, which vaulted him back into the chip lead. Obreshkov has three cashes this year at the WSOP and is looking to make his first career WSOP final table. His biggest WSOP cash was in 2016 for $13,612 when he finished 36th in the Little One for One Drop.

Stanley Lee sits in second with 8,980,000 and looks to make yet another final table where the first-place prize is over a million dollars. He finished in ninth place in the Millionaire Maker in 2016 for $96,091 for a close call. He seems to do well in these large fields, as he finished in 24th place ($45,275) in 2015 and booked a 39th place ($28,160) cash this year in the Millionaire Maker. He is already guaranteed $37,831 with 20 players coming back Wednesday, but he is most definitely going to be hunting for that elusive gold WSOP bracelet.

Romania's Joldis Cosmin rounds out the top three stacks with 7,935,000 and looks to book his first-ever tournament win. He made a deep run in the WSOP Main Event last year, finishing in 85th place for $67,855 for his best cash. With a top three stack, Joldis has a good shot at topping that cash and possibly logging a major win.

Other notables still in contention for the first-place payout of $1,094,349 are Scott Montgomery (7,335,000), Will "The Thrill" Failla (5,400,000), Yuliyan Kolev (4,195,000), two-time WSOP bracelet winner Brian Yoon (3,900,000), Ihar Soika (3,525,000), Maurice Hawkins (3,500,000) and Scott Baumstein (1,955,000).

The day started with 234 players and that number shrunk quickly. The action slowed down a bit as the day progressed and with 20 players returning for the final day on Wednesday, it should be a tough grind. A total of ten levels were played today that lasted just under 12 hours.

Some big names that exited the tournament on Day 3 include Ole Schemion (206th place - $6,202), Ismael Bojang (184th place - $6,202), Yevgeniy Timoshenko (177th place - $6,202), Mark Radoja (134th place - $7,164), Men Nguyen (124th place - $7,164), TJ Cloutier (70th place - $13,849), Paul Volpe (56th - $16,665) and Joe McKeehen (26th place - $37,831). Everyone that was lucky enough to find a bag at the end of the night will be guaranteed to take home at least $37,831.

The final day, where play will end once a champion is crowned, will commence Wednesday at 11 AM local time. Blinds will be at 60,000/120,000 with a 15,000 ante and each level remains 60 minutes long. Players will have a 15-minute break every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after the sixth level of the day.

Obreshkov Slow-Plays Aces and Gets Paid

• Nível 30: 50,000-100,000, 15,000 ante
Stoyan Obreshkov
Stoyan Obreshkov

Stoyan Obreshkov was under the gun and raised to 210,000. Brandon Wise was on the button and three-bet to 575,000. After pondering for a bit, Obreshkov called.

The flop was {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, and Obreshkov check-called Wise's bet of 575,000. The turn was the {4-Spades}, and both players checked to the river, which was the {k-Spades}. Obreshkov moved all in, covering Wise's remaining stack. Wise took several minutes to think and then elected to call.

Obreshkov tabled {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}, and Wise sent his cards straight into the muck. Players at the table inquired on what Wise had, and he told them he had jacks. This leaves us with 27 players remaining, and a redraw is about to take place.

Thomas Ryan Won't Let Go of the Ladies

• Nível 30: 50,000-100,000, 15,000 ante

There was about 1,000,000 in the pot already as the board showed {6-}{3-}{3-}{6-}{3-}. Joldis Cosmin was in the big blind, and checked to Thomas Ryan on the button. Ryan bet 500,000, and Cosmin check-raised all in. Ryan had two million behind and said, "I didn't think you'd check back a six." Eventually, he called.

Cosmin table {k-Hearts}{10-Spades} to play the board, and Ryan had {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for a bigger full house to double through.

Alexander Farahi Loses a Flip to Bust

• Nível 30: 50,000-100,000, 15,000 ante

Alexander Farahi got his last chips into the middle with ace-king off-suit and was called by Salvatore DiCarlo with two queens. We saw Farahi heading to the payout desk, and according to one of the photographers, the board ran out dry for Farahi, and he was eliminated.

Farahi just booked his fourth cash of the series in this event, but most impressively, he went deep in yet another event with a seven-figure top prize, coming in third in the Millionaire Maker for over $560,000.

Yoon: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Obreshkov: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The board ran out {4-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{8-Hearts}{k-Hearts}, and the rivered king kept Yoon in the mix.
