Only nine players remain out of the 456 entries that were made live and online. Daniel Rezaei holds a massive chip lead as he has 30% of the chips in play. Rezaei was one of the online players that got through to Day 3 after bagging in the online Day 1+2.
Rezaei can easily have his biggest cash to date in this tournament. His biggest cash right now, according to the hendon mob, came in this exact tournament last year when it was held in Rio de Janeiro. Rezaei finished 9th last year and that won him $100,000. He needs to finish 7th or higher in this year’s tournament to improve on that score and the first-place prize is of course a wonderfull one million US dollars.
