All Set for Day 3 of the NAPT Main Event in Las Vegas

The NAPT Main Event enters Day 3 with 34 players returning to play down to the final table and live coverage of the action available at PokerStars TV.

The Main Event of the North American Poker Tour by PokerStars is now in full swing. Yesterday was a big day as the bubble burst, and 159 players made money, taking home at least $2,625 for their efforts.

That was only the start of the action, as those remaining continued to battle it out for a long while, bringing the field down to 34 players. Those 34 came back today to continue their journey to the final table, and several more players have already hit the rail, bringing the NAPT Main Event down to three tables.

Anthony Dianaty finished Day 2 as an overwhelming chip leader and he is poised to make it into one of the final nine seats. However, he’ll have to navigate his way around some of the veterans of the game, such as Nick Schulman and Sergio Aido, who both made it into Day 3 with big stacks.

If you’d like to follow the NAPT Main Event in (almost) real-time as things unfold, the PokerStars TV live stream is up and running, and it will be available for the entire day today, as well as the full final table coverage tomorrow.

Running November 12 – 19, the 50/50 series by PokerStars offers over $3.5 million in guarantees, including the $400k GTD Main Event.

Fifty tournaments featuring a $50 buy-in each and offering over $3.5 million up for grabs between them — that’s the PokerStars 50/50 Series in a nutshell, and all mid-stakes grinders will be jumping at the opportunity to join the action.

The series kicks off on November 12 and runs through November 19, featuring several tournaments every day. Game types and guarantees differ, of course, but one thing that remains constant is the $50 buy-in, which makes it easier to plan your budget.

The Main Event, taking place on the last day of the series, comes with a very generous $400,000 guarantee and features a popular PKO format, so this one promises a lot of action and some big scores along the way besides final table prizes.
