(pokernews.com)- Tony Dunst was once kicked out of the country of Australia after living here for quite some time and overstaying his allowance, but he’s back and on a mission to win the 2016 Aussie Millions Main Event. To help him reach that ultimate goal, Dunst amassed the most chips on Day 3 and will lead the final 40 players into Day 4 with 1.627 million.
After he finished extremely strong on Wednesday’s Day 2 with a double knockout of Julius Colmanand Richard Ashby, Dunst was up to his tricks again on Day 3 with another double elimination. This time it was Philipp Gruissem and Pascal Hartmann that he sent to the rail thanks to flopping an ace with ace-jack against queens and nines.

Finishing Day 3 with the second largest stack was James Obst with 1.196 million in chips. ThenSamantha Abernathy (1.195 million), Alexander Lynskey (1.073 million), and Artur Koren (1.009 million) rounded out the top five.
When the day began, 150 players remained. The top 80 spots were set to reach the money, but after four levels of play, 81 still remained at the dinner break. Upon return, it didn’t take long for the bubble to burst, and it was Mark Bevan falling as the last player to go home empty-handed.
From there, the eliminations quickly began to mount. First, it was Liv Boeree who hit the rail in 80th place, followed by PLAYER=”joe-hachem”]Joe Hachem[/PLAYER] in 79th. Others to finish in the money were Max Silver (72nd), Sam Cohen (61st), Nick Yunis (54th), Jared Graham (53rd), andMichael Egan (45th).
A flurry of eliminations at the end of the night saw Daniel Engels hit the rail in 44th, Sam Steindl fall in 43rd, Victor Teng finish in 42nd, and Jimmy Siu bust in 41st to close out play. In fact, it was Dunst who busted Steindl in one of the final hands to help pad his chip lead.
With Day 3 done and dusted, the surviving competitors will return at 12:30 p.m. local time to Crown Melbourne to further battle towards the top prize of AU$1.6 million. All those remaining are guaranteed at least AU$25,000, but as we all know, those left have their sights set on much, much more.
