Well, that was fast. The 2018 WSOP Main Event is now in the money. The money bubble burst on Saturday night and action was suspended with all 1,182 remaining players currently in the money. The lucky 1,182 will win at least $15,000 for a min-cash. In Sun Geoum from New York City is the big stack with nearly 1.7 million. Phil Ivey has a healthy stack and sits in the Top 75 in chips.

We're in the money! The 2018 WSOP Main Event played down to the money on Day 3. The money bubble burst late in the evening and action was suspended with exactly 1,182 players remaining. Everyone who returns for Day 4 locked up a min-cash.

A couple of former champions are still alive including Joe Cada, and Jonathan Duhamel. Several ex-Main Event champs hit the road including Jesus Ferguson, Phil Hellmuth, Robert Varkonyi and Scotty Nguyen.

Phil Ivey is probably the biggest name still alive. He bagged up 72/1182. Barbara Enright, the first woman to make a WSOP Main Event final table bagged up a monster stack that puts her in 10th place overall.

In Sun Geoum from New York City is the big stack with nearly 1.7M. Frank Flowers is second overall with 1.6M. Canada's Alex Won is third with 1.43M. Sam Bernabeau from Spain is fourth with 1.42M, and France's Eric Sfez is fifth overall with a tick under 1.4M. Rounding out the Top 10 overall are... Michael Lavenburg, Julius Malzanini, Alexandro Tricarico, Kaylen Lebaron, and Barbara Enright.

And then there were 1,182. The third day of action in the WSOP Main Event started with an unified field of 2,786 runners that combined all of the survivors from Day 2A/2B and 2C.

They expected 50% of the field would get liquidated after five levels of play (2-hour levels). But they didn't exactly expect the money bubble to pop. I figured it would happen early on Day 4, but looked like lot of folks wanted to throw down on Saturday night.

Matthew Hopkins became the Bubble Boy (or gender neutral Bubble Person) when he busted in 1,183rd place. He got a handshake from Jack Effel, his photo plastered over the internet, and won a freeroll into next year's WSOP Main Event. I also feel bad about the person who bubbled the bubble. We never hear about those sad stories? They should get a freeroll into a donkament of their choice.

A couple of former champs failed to advance to Day 4 and that included Scotty Nguyen, Greg Merson, Robert Varkonyi and Phil Hellmuth. Yes, the Poker Brat is nevermore.

NYC's In Sun Geoum is the chip leader with 1.7M. Also in the top 10 are Frank Flowers, Alex Wong, Sam Bernabeau, Eric Sfez, Michael Lavenburg, Julius Malzanini, Alexandro Tricarico, Kaylen Lebaron, and Barbara Enright.

A couple of well-known players are in the Top 50 including Ben Yu, E-Fro, Cory Albertson, Jeff Banghart, Paul Volpe, Chris Moorman, Barry Hutter, Shannon Shorr, Dan Heimiller, Daniel Opsina, and Adam Geyer.

Among those fortunate souls who are still alive in the Main Event and locked up a min-cash included... Davidi Kitai, Lacey Jones, Sam Touil, Chino Rheem, Ralph Perry, Phil Ivey, Josh Jackson, Andrew Yeh, Toon Kim, Mike Takayama, Kell Minkin, Scott Davies, Clayton Maguire, Ben Mintz, Aditya Agarwal, Steve Billirakis, Adam Levy, Tom Cannuli, Johannes Becker, Bart Lybaert, Uri Reichenstein, Walter Treccarichi, James Obst, Jason Gooch, Stefan Huber, Patrik Antonius, Ming Xi, Kristen Bicknell, Brad Meyers, Jessica Dawley, Ray Henson, Johnny Bax, Porter Lambert, Ben Zamani, Eric Hershler, Shaun Deeb, Martjin Gerrits, Ivan Demidov, Jonathan Duhamel, Park Yu Cheung, Lee Markholt, Danny Alaei, Mike watkins, Mike Wong, Natalie Teh, Manig Loeser, Rob Peacock, Sammy LeFleur, Fredrick Kensen, Ema Zajmovic, Brent Hanks, Eugene Katchalov, Gene Todd Bro, Dan Fuchs, Andy Phan, Fernando Karam, Paul Sexton, Sylvian Loosli, Ralph Massey, Kenneth Watson, Loni Harwood, Ba Dinh, Philip Yeh, keith Tilston, Will Jaffe, Mike Michnik, Liv Boeree, James Akenhead, Tony Pinto, Ben Pollak, Mustapha Kanit, Theo Tran, Jake Cody, Darren Elias, Victor Choupeaux, Roland Israelashvili, Todd Brunson, Joe Cada, Jordan Young, Dong Kim, Jan Eric Schwippert, Antoine Labat, Marc MacDonnell, Chris Bjorin, Jim Collopy, Maria Konnikova, Alexandre Reard, Jason Strasser, Marvin Rettenmaier, Max Babko, Men the Master, Katie Stone, Per Hildrebrand, Shane Buchwald, Ryan Laplante, Alex Smith, Melanie Weisner, Ilya Trincher, Jesse Sylvia, Aaron Stuery, Allan Le, Scott Clements, Jamie Kerstetter, Alexis Fleur, Chou Chou, Pierre Neuville, and Chris Klodnicki.
