Ryan Leng Leads 4 Survivors Into 2018 WSOP $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty Final Day

Ryan Leng is aiming for a first WSOP gold bracelet and has secured a comfortable entry into the final day of the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty to attack the top. The player bagged and tagged 5.44 million at the end of what was supposed to be the tournament’s final day.

With four contestants still in the mix, play will have to extend into an additional fourth day. Action is set to resume at noon local time today at the Brasilia poker room of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, home to the WSOP for years now.

Leng will be accompanied and challenged by three more players at the table. Ranno Sootla collected the second largest stack last night. A look at the temporary chip counts chart shows that the player is set to enter Day 4 of the tournament with 3.835 million. Christian Nolte finished third in chips last night, trailing not far behind Sootla with 3.405 million.

Jay Farber, the player who finished runner-up to Ryan Riess in the 2013 WSOP World Championship, has, too, secured a spot among the final four with 2.195 million. The player might be the short stack into Day 4 of the event, but he is still pretty deep, which promises for additional thrill both for the remaining contenders and those fervently following WSOP action from Las Vegas and anywhere else in the world. It is also important to note that all four survivors are vying for their first gold bracelet from the series.

Leng’s Road to the Chip Lead

Leng had a bumpy third day of play. The player climbed to the chip leading position to then drop to the short stack several times throughout the day, before eventually taking the lead for a final time and never looking back.

Leng clashed with Sootla on numerous occasions on Day 3. On a very important hand, Leng managed to double through his fellow competitor to improve his stacks significantly. At a later stage on Day 3, Sootla doubled through Leng, telling him they were now even. As mentioned above, the two players eventually ended the day occupying the top half of the chip counts chart.

Leng scored his best live tournament result about this time last year. The player finished runner-up to Germany’s Christopher Frank in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em for a cash prize of $237,776.

The $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em tournament attracted 1,983 entries this year. A prize pool of $2,677,050 was generated. The money was split into payouts for the top 298 places. It is also important to note that participants are also being awarded a $500 bounty for every fellow player they eliminate.

Each of the four finalists is guaranteed a minimum payout of $89,151, but they are all certainly eying the $272,765 top prize and the coveted WSOP gold bracelet that goes along. Action resumes at noon local time at the host casino. The remaining hopefuls will play down to a champion.
