Today was Day 3 of the MILLIONS Main Event. 285 players started the day, stemming from two Day 2s that played over the weekend. Some of these players have been hustling at the tables for many days, especially if they played many Day 1s to earn a Day 2 seat.
At this point, stamina comes into play, and you can tell who has experience in these marathons by observing the vegetables and the green tea on their tables. These players do all that is required to stay alert during an eleven-hour day of poker.
Darryll Fish has been growing all day and leads the field into Day 4 with a whopping 98,450,000. Fish just added a WPT Championship to his titles in January, and is on a mission this week at Playground Poker Club.
Gnawing at him is Guillaume Nolet, a very strong local that has made it deep in Playground Events in the past. His 87,000,000 chips look pretty good on the list. Taylor Black and Lucas Drolet follow. Antonio Esfandiari and Marc-André Ladouceur have also survived the day.
Tomorrow’s seating draw will be published shortly, along with all players’ counts.
