The March to the Money Bubble Begins on Day 3

Inge Forsmo leads the charge.

Welcome back to Day 3 of the EPT9 Sanremo here at Casino Sanremo. What started with 797 players has been whittled down to 152, all of whom are looking to make the money at the top 120. That means 32 players will leave today empty handed.

Odds are Inge Forsmo will not be among them as he enters play as the chip leader with a massive 606,100, more then 100K more than his next closest competitor. Some other players that will carry big stacks into Day 3 are Charly Maracchione (505,800), Jason Tompkins (500,000), Lorenzo Sabato (387,900), Matt Salsberg (338,700) and Yevgeniy Timoshenko (336,300).

They will be joined by the likes of David Vamplew (294,800), Shaun Deeb (188,800), Ludovic Lacay (183,100), Isaac Haxton (148,800), Todd Terry (97,500) and Rupert Elder (31,500); as well as, Team PokerStars Pros Ana Marquez (162,000), Jude Ainsworth (138,700), Luca Moschitta (104,400), Liv Boeree (81,400), Chris Moneymaker (70,600), Mickey Petersen (66,500), Jose Barbero (65,100), Andre Akkari (46,300) and Pius Heinz (43,600). Interestingly, Boeree is looking to capture her second EPT Sanremo title in four seasons after taking it down back in Season 6.

Who will be the next to add their name to this prestigious list?
