The bubble burst at the Main Event of the World Series of Poker last night, and 284 players finished the day with at least $20,320 in winnings. The remaining 337 players are eying the $8.25 million first-place prize as play resumes today at noon PST for Day 4.

Rome's Dario Minieri, who won €125,780 in a European Poker Tour event last October, will start the day with a healthy chip lead, holding $2.4 million. Jeff Weiss of Florida is second with just over $1.5 million.
