Norway’s Jon Kyte was the action man of the day and was in cruise mode for the most part and looked to be heading for the chip lead at the end of the day. While he did finish with a top 10 stack, it was Israel’s Netanel Minyan who finished on top of the Day 1c chip leaderboard with a stack of 300,100. Bagging the second most chips was Minyan’s countrymate Roni Tal with 272,300 behind Tal was another Norwegian Stian Knutsen with 271,600.
While Minyan does end as Day 3 leader, the overall lead lies with Turkey’s Orpen Kisacikoglu who has 381,900 in chips followed by Day 1a chip leader Gianny Dominique Morano in second place with 363,000. Minyan and his stack are in 5th position overall.
