Canevet C'est Bien! BoM Main Event Final 9 is Set!
It was exactly midnight when Andrew Hedley had sat for a while trying to figure out whether he should call for his tournament life or not.
Eventually, he decided to do it, and it proved to be the wrong decision.
Maxime Canevet, who was responsible for the most bust-outs today, took the chips of the Brit with top pair versus second pair (see below).
And with this we have found the last nine men standing out of an original crowd of over 3,800 players!
We started Day 3 today with 60 players and that number dwindled steadily over the course of the day. Ina Pavlova and 888poker pro Sofia Lövgren were the last women standing and eventually finished in 25th and 19th place, respectively.
In the beginning Mantas Urbonas and Andrew Hills made the most noise in the field but in the later stages of the day it was Maxime Canevet who soared to the top and is now the runaway chip leader.
Chip Stacks at the Final Table
The top nine players will meet again at 2 PM local time tomorrow and battle for the big money.
Out of the €1,850,760 total prize pool, €877,000 will be won at this table alone all the way up to the €300,000 for first place!
