Moneymaker Bags Big on Day 3 as the 2021 WSOP Main Event Bubble Bursts

Chris Moneymaker

The 2021 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event has concluded Day 3 by bursting the money bubble, sending all 1,000 survivors home with a guaranteed min-cash of $15,000. No portion of the $62,011,250 prize pool has been awarded yet in the pinnacle live poker event of the year at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, as all survivors bagged and tagged their chips for the night.

Jessica Cai claimed the Day 3 chip lead with a stack of 1,796,000 with Natural8 ambassador Phachara Wongwichit (1,773,000) hot on her heels. Several other contestants bagged up more than 1.5 million in chips such as Joshua Paige Remitio (1,671,000), Ehsan Amiri (1,574,000), Stephen Song (1,557,000), Neel Choksi (1,552,000), and Andreas Kniep (1,509,000).

The early spotlight on Day 3 belonged to the 2003 WSOP Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker, who was among the first players to run up a seven-figure stack. Moneymaker spent the last levels of the night on the feature table and advanced with one of the biggest stacks in the room as he bagged up 1,432,000. Among the victims of his early hot run was also Robert Kuhn, who ran into pocket aces. Fellow Main Event champions Qui Nguyen (659,000) and Martin Jacobson (142,000) survived the day as well.

Cai was spotted mid-way through the day with a big stack and she continued to rake in big pots to become a contender for the overnight lead. She knocked out several opponents, one of which ran with an overpair into her flopped full house, and she eventually claimed the top spot once the money bubble had burst. Dragana Lim chipped up throughout the day and bagged up a top ten stack as well after claiming 1,539,000 to her name. Other female contenders to advance with above average stacks were JJ Liu (765,000), Laura Desantis (686,000), Mimi Luu (682,000), and Kitty Kuo (528,000) while at least two dozen more will return for the money stages.

Notables with big stacks outside of the top 10 include Chris Dowling, Gianluca Speranza, Day 2abd chip leader Rameez Shahid, Stephen Chidwick, Dillon Ott, Toby Lewis, Aristeidis Moschonas, Nick Petrangelo, Chance Kornuth and Tim Reilly.

Less fortunate were familiar names such as Anthony Zinno, Justin Bonomo, Ben Lamb, Ole Schemion, Greg Mueller, Faraz Jaka, Andy Black, Niall Farrell, the 2007 WSOP Main Event champion Jerry Yang, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Pat Lyons, Joseph Hebert, and Chris Hunichen to name all but a few.

During hand-for-hand play which commenced with 1,005 hopefuls remaining, eight hands were completed to whittle down the field to the 1,000 survivors. The bubble burst in painful fashion when Kevin Campbell saw his aces cracked by the ace-nine of Chris Alafogiannis, triggering cheers from all corners of the Amazon room. While Campbell missed out on the $15,000 payday, he was given a seat for the 2022 WSOP Main Event as consolation prize.
