Final Four Return For Day 4 With Antonio Still Alive
Day 3 of the $111,111 One Drop High Roller event started with 26 players, but only 24 would get paid.
Haralabos Voulgaris busted 26th, and Yevgeniy Timoshenko was the unfortunate Bubble Boy in 25th.
The field had surprisingly shallow chip stacks for most of the day, with the average stack often below 30 big blinds.
The big story is the reigning One Drop champion Antonio Esfandiari, and his quest to win back-to-back titles. Esfandiari is last in chips with four left, and if he had won a race in the second-to-last hand of the night, he would've been massive chipleader with three left.
The other three players -- Bill Perkins, Anthony Gregg, and Chris Klodnicki -- are all playing for their first WSOP bracelet.
