Today in the 3-Bet we find a £100k twist at the partypoker Millions, Omaha players hit the jackpot and Daniel Negreanu explains why you lose at poker.

1) partypoker Plays Willy Wonka

The £6.2m partypoker Millions has hit Day 3 at Dusk Till Dawn with just 92 players left with a shot at the £1m first-place prize.

Lauck: Low, but not out.

Included among them are now just 7 players with a Golden Chip in front of them.

What does that Golden Chip mean? These guys played their Day 1 flights for the partypokerLIVE MILLIONS Main Event way back at the partypoker Caribbean Adventure last November.

Because they did that, the last player standing among them gets a £100,000 bonus on top of their regular payout. Very, very sweet.

At this point the £100k looks to be Thomas Boivin’s to lose but don’t sleep on WCOOP Main Event winner Jonas Lauck. The final 7 and chip counts as of level 42:

Thomas Boivin 50,570,000
Jacob Mulhern 35,100,000
Mateusz Rypulak 28,850,000
Jonas Lauck 9,700,000
Thomas Dunwoodie 8,500,000
Robert Kostesky 8,100,000
Tomas Fara 7,200,000
