Instead of playing down to the money as originally planned, WPT Foxwoods Main Event day 3 ended play with 28 remaining to return Sunday to play into the money.

The chip leader is Chris Hunichen, who ended the day with 714,000.  Nikolai Yakovenko is second in chips with 580,000, and Josh Arieh rounds out the top three with 548,500. 

They will resume play Sunday with time remaining in level 16 and blinds 2,500-5,000 with a 500 ante.

There are two WPT winners left in the field, Gavin Smith and Hoyt Corkins.   Both players are familiar with Foxwoods success.  Corkins won his first WPT title here in Season 2 and Smith won his first major event here back in 1998.

Players will return on Sunday at 12pm to blinds of 2,500-5,000 ante 500.  Here are the top five chip counts from the end of Day 3:

1. Chris Hunichen - 714,000 (143 big blinds)
2. Nikolai Yakovenko - 580,000 (116 big blinds)
2. Josh Arieh - 548,500 (110 big blinds)
3. Ben Klier - 465,500 (93 big blinds)
4. Keven Stammen - 387,000 (78 big blinds)
