EPT10 Vienna: Day 3 seat draw

The EPT Vienna Main Event enters Day 3, one of the most exciting days at any event. Today we'll hit the bubble (almost certainly in the second 90-minute level of the day) and we'll have a couple of monstrous stacks emerge, some owned by former EPT champions and high rollin' cash game players, others by online qualifiers who are more used to playing $50 buy-ins than €5k multi-day tourneys.

The Day 3 seat draw is obviously very important and there's a couple of wince-inducing starting eights here. Look at Table 6 with PCA High Roller champ Alex Bilokur, Team PokerStars Star Johnny Lodden and Team PokerStars Online's Marc-Andre Ladouceur. Then take a glance at unlucky table 13 with Sam Trickett, Robert Haigh, Julian Herold, Marko Neumann, David Vamplew, Fabrice Soulier, MAdis Muur and Ryan Spittles. That's a pretty tough draw there.
