Today in the PokerStars LIVE Macau poker room inside the City of Dreams, this PokerStars Championship Macau Main Event will get closer to determining the third winner of a PokerStars Championship.
Play will resume at noon with 37 players returning to the tables out of the 536 who bought in to this tournament. With a total prize pool of HK$20,796,800, the eventual winner will pocket an astounding $3,130,000.
Leading the way today is Xuan Tan who was one of only two players to bag a seven-figure stack. Tan completed Day 3 with 1,380,000 chips, followed by Yan Li with 1,000,200. The top five stacks are rounded out by Dong Guo (880,000), David Peters (875,000), and Thibaut Blondel (870,000).
The plan for Day 4 is to play through five 90-minute levels or until just 16 players remain, whichever comes first.
Day 4 Level Structure
|Level||Duration||Small Blind||Big Blind||Ante|
Everyone returning to the tables today is guaranteed to make at least HK$101,000. Those who are among the final 16 (which is likely to be when play pauses today, rather than reaching the end of five levels), will be guaranteed HK$170,000, but they'll be just one elimination away from laddering to HK$221,000.
