When players return today to play day 3 of PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final Main Event there will be only 128 left out of a total of 650 entries. They are all competing to win a share of the €6,5 million prize pool, with €1,240,000 reserved for the winner.
One of those still in is Spanish pro Ana Marquez. Last time we heard from Ana Marquez was at the PCA in January where she took 22nd in the $25,000 High Roller for $65,360. There is something with Ana and the PCA: She always seems to be doing pretty well at the Paradise Island. But here in the EPT Grand Final she has a lot of work to do, as she has only 54,800 chips in front of her, average is 152,344.
Day 2 was the end for a lot of great players, among them a very short stacked Liv Boeree. She moved all in over the top of Ole Schemion’s button raise and the German made the call. Boeree had and Ole Schemion . The board came and Boeree was out of the tournament.
WSOPE Main Event winner Annette Obrestad had a bit of a cooler when she shoved pocket eights into nines and later had her full house cracked by a bigger boat:
Argh today was a bad day.. busted shoving 8s into 9s after being up to 95k and getting coolered in bit pot with 66 on KT76K vs Ts. GG :/

And Kitty Kuo tweeted that she busted to Russian Iosif Beskrovnyy, when her kings could not hold up to his A3 that made a flush on the river:
Kk vs A3 suited on 689 board,u only have 53%-47%,maybe shouldn't slow play pre in position !
