As day 3 of the 2011 WPT Prague has been concluded, right at the very top of the chip count is Stanislaw Kretz, with a huge lead over the others with his pretty impressive 6.3 million chips. The day started with 63 players in total, but as the day ended, Kretz will be leading the five other players on to the final table.
The event is considered to be the largest WPT event in Europe, having attracted a total of 571 players, having beaten the WPT Vienna event during season 9 of the WPT. There were a still a number of prominent players in the tables of day 3 including Mike McDonald, who was the first to go, Vinny Pahuja, Mohsin Charania, Eugene Katchalov, Casey Kastle, Chris McClung, and a number of others as well. Unfortunately for them, only 6 players were going on forward to the final table.
While a huge chunk of the starting players of day 3 were getting eliminated one by one, Kretz was building his chip stack on to huge heights. One of his notable moves was when he managed to take a huge pot against Chris McClung. Kretz was also responsible for taking down a multitude of players including Agris Klaise, Tobias Reinkemeier, Denis Pisarev, Thomas Frandsen, and Jan Bendik, at the later parts of the day. Of course, not at all that far behind Krtez is Benjamin Pollak, who also built up his chip stack to a staggering amount. Pollak was responsible for taking down Zachary Korik, and right at the end of the day, Pollak had a little over 4.8 million chips as compared to Kretz’s 6.3 million.

As the six players have already been decided during day 3, it is time to move on to the final table for the next day, and right at the very top of the list in chip holdings is Stanislaw Kretz, with a staggering 6.3 million chips.

On fourth is Sigurd Estelad, holding a stack of 1,575,000 in total.
