Although 75 players would start off for Day 3 of the Aussie Millions Main Event, 3 of those players would rather have slept in as the money started at 72nd and beyond. Action ground to a halt as the bubble lasted more for then two hours before Kenna James would finally go out in 73rd. After that, the play resumed with furious energy – so much so that the tournament director decided to cut play two levels earlier then scheduled once the field was down to just 26 players.

Phil Ivey continues his strong run and currently sits 6th overall with 1.1 million chips, as did the Day 2 chip leader, Tim O’Shea, who ended the day in second place. Among the more notable knock-outs were Billy Argyros, who left in 51st spot for $20k and Michael Tureniec, who cashed in 46th for $20k also.

Here’s the current leader board with 26 players remaining:

  1. Matt Turk, 2.675 million
  2. Tim O’Shea, 1.376 million
  3. Patrick Healy, 1.353 million
  4. Bjorn Li, 1.222 million
  5. Yann Dion, 1.156 million
  6. Phil Ivey, 1.107 million
  7. Daniel Idema, 1.033 million
  8. Minh Nguyen, 992,000
  9. Borge Dypvik, 882,000
  10. Lee Nelson, 878,000
