Day 3 of Event #28: Monster Stack $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, a tournament that attracted 7,192 players and created a prize pool of $9,702,000, saw 272 players return to action, but after 10 levels of play, just 29 would remain in contention for the $1,286,942 first-place prize, with two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Hoyt Corkins leading the way.

Others still in contention include 2014 WSOP bracelet winner winner Asi Moshe (5,545,000), boisterous Brazilian Caio Toledoq (4,920,000), Team Blue Shark Optics Pro Ted Leahy (4,390,000), circuit grinder Jake Bazeley (2,200,000), and the short-stacked Josh Wallace (870,000).

"It went good," Corkins told PokerNews after bagging and tagging. "I ran pretty good for the most part. Seems like I won two-thirds of the races. Took a couple of beats, but I give more than I took. I like my chances, but you know anything can happen. The blinds go up, and you can run cold for a couple of levels and be out. Nothing is for sure. It's hour levels, and the short stacks get short and can move all in on you, so that makes it difficult too."

Of course things didn't go so hot for hundreds of players on Day 3. Among those to bust were Kyle Cartwright (220th - $6,990), Maria Mayrinck (187th - $6,990), Garry Gates (173rd - $6,990), Benjamin Zamani (140th - $8,155), Scotty Nguyen (101st - $8,155), Blake Barousse (60th - $19,806) and Scott Montgomery (36th - $36,700).
