As per the schedule, the WSOP Main Event Day 3 began on Saturday, July 7, after the survivors from the qualifying flights came together to pursue their dream of becoming the world champion. The field started with 2,786 players and later whittled down to 1,182 who returned on day four.

At The End Of Day 3

A prize money of $8.81million and the bracelet are reserved for the winner of the Main Event. But, the huge prize pool promises at least cash of $15,000 to each player from here on. In Sun Geoum started off as the chip leader on Day 4 with 16,96,000 followed by Frank Flowers at 16,24,000.

An interesting turn of events landed Geoum the first position but, it was Flowers leading the run for the most part of the day.

This is what the philanthropist and poker enthusiast, Frankie Flowers, said after the fourth level ended. “I’m having a blast, bro. We’re just chilling, having a great time. I’m at over 1.2 [million] right now. I’m running really good, I had a lot of really good hands, had a couple of guys try and bluff me off … I’ve just been running good and it feels like it’s meant to be.”
