The big-name players continued to flourish on Day 3 of the 2014 Aussie Millions.

While Salvatore Fazzino snagged the overnight chip lead with 1.5 million, Scott Seiver (1.13 million) and Sorel Mizzi (1.09 million) aren’t far behind.

The remaining field of 36 players is littered with poker pros as Jonathan Duhamel, Erik Seidel, Jake Balsiger, John Juanda, Jason Mercier, Jeff Rossiter, Rhys Jones, Liv Boeree and Eoghan O’Dea are still hunting the $1.6 million first-place prize.

Esfandiari, Guillen Make the Money

Day 3 saw the money bubble finally burst in the 2014 Aussie Millions with the final 70 players all making it into the cash.

Julian Track, Angel Guillen, Aaron Lim all min-cashed for $15k while Daniel Neilson, Marco Johnson and Antonio Esfandiari all made it to the $20k level.

Fans of the Aussie Millions will find several familiar faces in the final 36 as Sorel Mizzi and Erik Seidel have both made the final table in the past.

Even former November Niner Jake Balsiger, who is still hunting his first major title, cashed four times in last year’s Aussie Millions with a runner-up finish in the $1.1k rebuy for $71k.

Action resumes in the 2014 Aussie Millions Main Event at 12:15 p.m. tomorrow. Here’s a look at the top 10 chip counts at the end of Day 3:

  • Salvatore Fazzino – 1,540,000
