Day 3 of the Main Event ended with 1,182 players all in the money. Frankie Flowers finished near the top of the counts and is looking for a deep run to continue the charity work that his father started.

“I’m having a blast, bro,” said Flowers after the day’s fourth level. “We’re just chilling, having a great time. I’m at over 1.2 [million] right now. I’m running really good, I had a lot of really good hands, had a couple of guys try and bluff me off … I’ve just been running good and it feels like it’s meant to be.”

If it’s meant to be, and the Poughkeepsie, New York native takes home the $8.8 million first-place money.

Joining Geoum and Flowers at the top of the chip counts are Alexander Wong (1,431,000), Samuel Bernabeu (1,418,000), and Eric Sfez (1,390,000). Two-time bracelet winner Eric Froehlich finished just outside the top 10 stacks with 1,235,000. Phil Ivey, who finished Day 2C near the top of the counts, bagged up 827,000.

Barbara Enright rounded out the top 10 Day 3 stacks with 1,260,000. Enright was the last woman to make the final table of this event when she finished fifth in 1995.

Other notables to make it through the day include Adam Geyer, Ben Yu, Samuel Touil, Chris Moorman, Paul Volpe, Shannon Shorr, Chino Rheem, Jonathan Hilton, Kelly Minkin, Brian Yoon, Brian Altman, Davidi Kitai, James Obst and Taylor Paur.

Jason Mercier, Keith Lehr, Chris Ferguson, Andy Philachack, Matt Berkey, Alex Foxen, David Bach, Anthony Zinno, Chris Hunichen, Joey Couden, Tom Marchese, Erick Lindgren, Andrew Brown, Cary Katz and Phil Hellmuth were among the many notables that busted before the day was completed.
