Day 3 of Event #30: $1,500 Monster Stack saw 148 players start the day and only 24 players bag a stack for Tuesday, Oct. 19. Action will resume at 11 a.m. local time, and play may continue until a winner is determined. Although the remaining players have locked up $21,768, they will all be looking to win the WSOP gold bracelet and the $610,347 top prize that awaits one of them.

Jaesh Balachandran bagged the top stack going into Day 4 with 17,600,000 chips. Three-time bracelet winner Ryan Leng (16,500,000), who claimed his third less than a week ago, will be looking for another one as he bagged the second-biggest stack of the night. Brazil’s Rafael Reis (10,975,000) and PokerNews’ Dannah Kamp (5,125,000) will also have a shot at gold.

However, not everyone could find a bag by the end of the night. Some of the notables who fell in Day 3 include James Romero, JJ Liu, Jason Somerville, Upeshka De Silva, and Chris Brewer.
