Who Will Walk Away with the $960,000 First-Place Prize in Poker Masters Event #3?
Event #3: $50,000 NLHE of the Poker Masters at the ARIA Resort and Casino began with 48 entrants, but now it's down to the final table of seven. Dan Smith leads the way at the final table with 1,982,000 chips, while Doug Polk and Jake Schindler are the only other players over the six-figure mark.
They will be joined by short stacks Sergio Aido, Cary Katz, and Erik Seidel, as well as Bryn Kenney, who has made back-to-back final tables after finishing seventh in Event #2.
The winner of Event #3 will move into the second spot on the leaderboard for The Poker Masters Purple Jacket. Steffen Sontheimer has first place locked up for now with $1.104 million after winning Event #2 earlier in the day and placing fourth in Event #1. Today's winner will be taking home $960,000 while the remaining seven players are all guaranteed at least $96,000.
