Event #3 $25,000 Short Deck
Although the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Super High Roller Series Sochi is only three days old, Wai Leong Chan enters his second Short Deck final table as chip leader today, over a million chips clear of nearest rival Thai Ha (Aaron Van Blarcum was also at Event #1‘s final table, finishing 3rd for $168,000). Paul Phua, third in chips, has made back to back finals here in Sochi, with a $58,000 cash yesterday for his eighth place finish in the $25,000 “normal deck” event. Ivan Leow, meanwhile, finished runner-up to Sam Trickett in this event, already banking $290,000 so far this week.
Nearly half a million dollars lies up top alone for the winner of this event, from a total prize pool of $1,525,000 generated by the 61-runner total field.
