Day 3 of the WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship came back just off the money, with 117 of the original 1,132-player field returning to try to get a piece of an over $3.6 million prize pool. Only 110 players were set to cash in the biggest WPT events of Season XVI thus far, and after the bubble did burst, some big names started to move themselves up the leader board.

It doesn’t get much bigger than online legend Cliff Josephy and through the second half of Day 3, the 2016 November Niner took control of the chip lead and then ended the day atop the leader board with just over 4 million chips. That puts “JohnnyBax” in pole position to make Friday’s final table, which will be streamed on PokerGO, but 23 players also have that live streamed final table in their sights.

Of the 24-player field that will start Day 4 of the WPT BPO Championship, none have ever won a World Poker Tour title. This is in sharp contrast to the first WPT event that was streamed on PokerGO earlier this month, when two-time champions JC Tran and Marvin Rettenmaier made the WPT Legends of Poker final table.

The field may not have reached the WPT mountain top, but a few players from the WPT BPO Championship field have come close. David Eldridge finished 2nd to Darren Elias in last year’s WPT Fallsview Poker Classic and Josh Kay took 3rd at WPT Choctaw this summer.

That means that a new WPT champion will be crowned on Friday on PokerGO. Follow live updates of the WPT BPO Championship on WPT.com, as Day 4 players down to a six-handed final table and follow Poker Central for end of day recaps from the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
