The Doyle's Day 3, Down To 36
December 17, 2021

The third major day of play at the World Poker Tour Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic, saw legends fall like leaves, as the day's starting field of 130 was brutally cut down to a lean 36.

Some of the beloved players left on the rail by the end of the day included the tournament's namesake Doyle Brunson, Kristy Gazes, Mike Matusow, Gavin Smith, Howard Lederer, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Erik Seidel, "The Bear" Barry Greenstein and PokerRoad Radio "B Team" member Bryan "Devo" Devonshire, who lost nearly all of his chips to Daniel Alaei when both players flopped trips Aces, effectively throwing Alaei to the top of the leaderboard, where he still sat at the end of the day's play.

Some of the players joining Alaei on Day 4, but with less chips to play with, include Antonio Esfandiari, John Juanda, Scotty Nguyen, Hasan Habib and PokerRoad's Amit Makhija.
