The third and final day of the Macau Poker Cup (MPC) Red Dragon main event at PokerStars Macau is now underway.
A total of 29 players returned from last night’s action to try and win the title of Red Dragon champion.
The field will be led by Norway's Kai Paulsen, who holds the chip lead with 458,000. He has a big advantage as most of the other stacks are below 200,000.
In contention for the title is Team PokerStars Asia pro Raymond Wu, who has 162,000 in chips. Fellow team member Tae Jun Noh made it to Day 2 but was eliminated in the last hour before play was stopped for the day.
Also alive are three female players, including Japan's Yu Kurita. Tournament director Danny McDonagh mentioned that if one of them went on to win tomorrow, it would mean three straight female Red Dragon champions.
Team PokerStars Asia pro Celina Lin won it in July last year while Kitty Kuo won the event in October.
The winner of the Red Dragon main event will receive HK $664,000 in prize money. The runner-up, meanwhile, will be awarded HK $458,000.
