Day 3 of the World Poker Tour Amsterdam Main Event started with still 65 players in contention for a first-place prize of €215,000. With the tournament only paying 45 players, 20 unfortunate souls needed to leave the tournament empty handed while the others would take home a guaranteed €6,000.

Starting out as the chip leader was Dutch pro Joep "pappe_ruk" van den Bijgaart. He would drastically increase his lead early on when he coolered Luke Marsh in a huge set-over-set pot. Van den Bijgaart's set of kings made Marsh's set of jacks useless, and the Brit made his exit while Van den Bijgaart started building a chip castle with bricks worth a combined 700,000, almost twice what any other player had at that point.

Canadian high roller Andrew Chen had already departed by that time, falling victim to Louis Salter in an ordinary coinflip situation. Another familiar face to bust well before the money was reigning WPT Player of the Year Anthony Zinno, and his departure meant the record of having three WPT titles would not be broken here in Amsterdam. As such, Carlos Mortensen, Gus Hansen and Zinno will share the record a bit longer.

Govert Metaal (flush versus full house), Sylvain Loosli (queens cracked by nines making a flush) and [Removed:17] (jacks to kings and aces) also hit the rail before Senh Ung would eventually become the bubble. Ung's ace-king didn't improve against David Hudson's queens, and afterward the tournament entered the money-stage.

As usual, the short stacks got moving after qualifying for some guaranteed money. Simon Trumper (ace-four against sevens, 43rd for €6,000), Rumen Nanev (five-six suited against eights, 41st for €6,000), World Series of Poker runner-up Felix Stephensen (sixes into queens, 40th for €6,000), Steve O'Dwyer (ace-nine beaten by king-eight, 31st for €6,500), MCOP and EPT champ Noah Boeken (flush versus full house, 30th for €6,500), and EPT champion Salvatore Bonavena (eights against queens, 22nd for €8,000) were just some of the famous players busting in the money.

Despite the loss of familiar faces, even more made it through to Day 4. Leading the way is Day 1a chip leader Fredrik Andersson with just over 1.4 million. Day 3 chip leader Joep van den Bijgaart is in second with over a million, while Sorel Mizzi is the only other player with a seven-figure stack holding 1,007,000. Louis Salter (880,000), Jason Wheeler (584,000), and Scott Davies (211,000) are also amongst the final 16. The two Van den Berg's are the short stacks — Erik van den Berg will bring 154,000 when the tournament resumes tomorrow at 2 p.m. while Thierry van den Berg bagged 138,000.

On Day 4 of the WPT Amsterdam, the final 16 players will play down to the final six players, who'll then play the live streamed final table on Saturday. PokerNews will again be on site, so check back tomorrow for all the updates of the penultimate day of one of the biggest poker tournaments in Dutch poker history.

Hudson Bubbles The Penultimate Day

[user20283] • Nivel 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Jason Wheeler raised to 18,000 and David Hudson moved all in for 185,000 chips, and Kees van Brugge moved all in over the top behind him. Wheeler folded and the showdown went as following.

Van Brugge: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Hudson: {2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The board ran out {A-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Spades}{5-Spades} and Van Brugge knocked out Hudson in 17th place. There are just 16 players remaining right now, and that means the day is done.

Davies Stays Alive After Cracking Van den Berg's Aces

[user20283] • Nivel 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Scott Davies moved all in before the flop for 95,000 chips and Thierry van den Berg moved all in over the top. The other players folded and the showdown went as following.

Van den Berg: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}
Davies: {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}

Van den Berg was in great shape to rake in a big pot, but the flop brought disaster with {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}. The Dutchman was very disappointed and the turn, the {5-Spades}, nor river, the {10-Spades}, changed the outcome of the hand. Van den Berg is now one of the short stacks.

Davies Crippled By Fundaro

Webjoker • Nivel 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Thierry van den Berg raised to 18,000 and Giacomo Fundaro made the call. Steve Warburton over called from the cutoff and Scott Davies on the button squeezed to 46,000. Both blinds folded and Van den Berg looked at all the stacks involved to see what he was up against. He eventually folded. Fundaro called, Warburton folded.

The flop came {8-Clubs}{K-Spades}{K-Hearts} and Fundaro check-called a bet of 42,000. Both players checked the {2-Hearts} on the turn and the {8-Spades} popped up on the river. Fundaro bet 92,000 and Davies called. Fundaro showed {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} for flopped trips, Davies mucked, claiming to have had aces.

Sorel Mizzi raised before the flop to 18,000 from the hijack and Jason Wheeler three-bet from the small blind to 46,000. Mizzi called and the flop came down {J-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}.

Wheeler bet 39,000 on the flop and Mizzi made the call.

The turn was the {10-Clubs} and this time Wheeler checked to Mizzi who bet 108,000.

Wheeler tanked for a little while before making the call. On the river the {Q-Hearts} hit and Wheeler check-called 135,000.

Mizzi showed {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for a rivered set, and Wheeler shook his head in disgust before flashing {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}.

Jason Wheeler opened under the gun for 18,000 and action quickly folded to Milenko Stanojic in the cutoff. Stanojic shoved his last 136,000 to the middle and the button and both blinds quickly released. Wheeler called.

Milenko Stanojic: {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Jason Wheeler: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

The flop came {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}, giving Wheeler just about a lock on the hand. The {Q-Hearts} on the turn sealed the deal, Stanojic got up and said his good byes. The river {2-Diamonds} was there just for good measures.
