The EPT Berlin Main Event has finished its Day 3 and is now down to just 24 players. Three of them - Kevin MacPhee, Vladimir Geshkenbein and Anton Wigg - are in play to become the first double EPT winner.
The European Poker Tour's Berlin Main Event is down to just 24 players, following the conclusion of Day 3 last night.
The tournament's fourth day of play saw the field being cut from around 100 runners to the current 24, with Englishman Marc Wright taking over the chip lead with a 2.4 million stack.
Wright, who is already sure to pick up the biggest cash of his career with a minimum payout of €20,000, is followed by the Czech Republic's Thomas Cibak in second place with 2,311,000 chips and Canadian Andrew Chen in third with 1,827,000.
Also still seated is a handful of familiar names from the EPT circuit, including three players who are now in the run to become the first two-time champion in the history of the tour.
2011 EPT Snowfest winner Vladimir Geshekenbein topped the chip counts yesterday, but had a momentary slip to finish his day in the middle of the field with a little more than 1 million chips.
Trailing him with 973,000 chips is 2010 EPT Copenhagen winner from Sweden, Anton Wigg, and finally, EPT Berlin champion from 2010, Kevin MacPhee, will also still be alive, although he is among the short stacks with 430,000.
Play will begin 1pm local time at the Spielbank Berlin arena, and will continue until an eight-player final table is set.
The players will then return tomorrow for the tournament's last day of play, with the final table being live streamed via PokerStars.tv
