The Diamond Las Vegas Open begins day three on Friday with just sixteen players still on the winner’s side. 
Tyler Styer is one of four remaining American players without a loss. Styer will face Chinese Taipei’s Kun Lin Wu on Friday evening.  Wu already has wins over Shane Van Boening, Jung-Lin Chang and Ralf Souquet in this event, but Styer will be looking to bring that winning streak to an end. 
Other winner’s side matches on Friday are 
Omar Al Shaheen vs Carlos Ariel Castro
Ko Ping-Chung vs Nguyen Phuc Long
Friday will also see a slew of eliminations as the field is narrowed to just 32 players by day’s end, and the left side of the board is filled with top talent. James Aranas, Van Boening, Souquet, Roberto Gomez, Ko Pin-Yi, Alex Kazakis, Carlo Biado, Albin Ouschan, Thorsten Hohmann, Joshua Filler and Francisco Bustamante are just a few of the players still fighting it out with one loss in this event.
