      It would be nice to see a other Dutch player at the final table, but time will tell.

      6,420 ffs.

      I bet on a field of 6,101-6,400 at 5/1 and a field of 6,401-6,800 at 11/4. Both insanely good bets and I've won money but those last 20 people who registered cost me over €150.

      here we go again , after day 3 now we are in the money and 661 players left, chipleader is Amar Amand from Usa with a nice stack at 1 139 000,

      Fedor Holz is running great and ended day 3 with 994 000 and is atm top5,

      Kenny Hallaert bagged a stack at 389 000,

      Still alot of pro names in the field like Negreanu, Hellmuth, Bonomo, Esfandari, Laak, Hachem that is trying to win again 10 years after his win.

      Will there be some unknown to win or will the pro players get the win again this year?

      Two levels of Day 4 are in the books and we still have some high flyers from previous years still in the mix.



      Do you think any can repeat their former heroics?

      Pierre Neuville is also going well with 5 million chips on the moment. Would be nice for the Belgium rail fans if he reached the Final Table. There is still 1 Dutch guy in the tournament and that's Marco van Opzeeland with 925k on the moment.

      Unfortunately ESPN have blanket rights over coverage of the main event. They will package up all the highlights and run them weekly in the lead up to November Final Table showdown.
