Day 3 Ends on a Cliffhanger
After 10 levels of play on Day 3, Pierre Neuville and Kevin "1SickDisease" Eyster are still heads up for the bracelet and the $622,998 top prize. Per World Series of Poker rules, after 10 levels of play the remaining players are allowed to continue for one more level if they unanimously agree, and Neuville was a bit tired and declined to continue.
Eyster, who has a more than two-to-one chip advantage, briefly protested, but there was nothing the American could do.
The fourth and actual final day will kickoff at 1 p.m. PT with the blinds at 50,000/100,000 and a 10,000 ante.
