    80 players in the money bubble as Day 3 starts

    The 747 hopefuls who received their first cards at the start of the Aussie Millions Main Event are down to the final 14 after some hectic Day 3 action that saw more aces bundled out of the competition, where the winner takes a $1.5 million paycheck home.

    80 players, the survivors of Days 1 and 2 and all guaranteed a slice of the prize money, had plans for that $1.5 million main prize. By the time the day ended, the sensation of the tournament, a chubby 19 year old online qualifier from Illinois called Jimmy Fricke would emerge as the chipleader, and Joe Hachem, the Australian champion of last year's WSOP main event, would be on his way out the door.

    It seemed that Fricke could do no wrong, and with a mixture of aggressive, skilful play and remarkable good fortune he built a formidable chip count of $2.6 million by the end of the day.

    Gus Hansen, Andy Black, and Patrik Antonius featured prominently in the top ten chip counts, but WSOP '07 champ Joe Hachem ended his run at the Aussie Millions when he was knocked out in 23rd place by Swedish student Jonas Buskas, playing in his first live tournament. It was a family affair - Buskas eliminated Hachem's brother, too!

    Last year's Aussie Millions champ was another casualty, sent to the rail by Gus Hansen in 36th position, whilst Haralabos Voulgaris who had started Day 3 as the chipleader was just one of the victims of the deadly Fricke and went to the rail in 21st place. He wasn't the only one to suffer at the hands of the Illinois terror - Ville Lukkanen, Shane Schleger and Nathan Bobik headed for the exit in rapid succession as the 19 year old's hot run continued.

    When play ended just past midnight Jimmy Fricke headed the chip counts at $2.6 million, with the rest of the Final Fourteen looking like this:

    Gus Hansen $1.861million
    Andrew Black $1.759 million
    Patrik Antonius $1.637 million
    Marc Karam $1.249 million

    Julius Colman $1.018 million
    Hans Martin Vogl $849 000
    Jonas Buskas $820 000
    Kristy Gazes $713 000
    Paul Wasicka $560 000
    Jacob Glassl $464 000
    Patrick Fletcher $462 000
    Dennis Huntly $449 000
    Emanuel Seal $434 000

    Day 4 is now in progress and will end once only 7 players are left at the table.
