Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Bounty

Sootla in the Lead on Day 3 of Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Bounty, Leng Close Behind

Ryan Leng

Welcome to the final scheduled day of play for Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Bounty. There will be just 29 coming back for Day 3 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and all the runners that remain have the same thing on their mind — a WSOP bracelet and the $272,504 first-place prize.

Ranno Sootla will be the leader of the pack with his 1,500,000, but coming right up on his tail end is Ryen Leng (1,381,000), who was the only other person to bag over one million in chips when played concluded last night.

Halfway through the day, it was Leng who was leading the tournament and it was not until the last seven hands of the night that Sootla would overtake that lead in a hand where Michael Telker called all in with his pocket kings into Sootla's full house on the river.

Other players coming into the final day with a notable stack include 2013 Main Event runner-up Jay Farber (901,000), Jamie O'Connor (901,000), Russell Rosenblum (730,000), Mikhail Semin (677,000), Juan Vecino (663,000), and Ryne Capra (602,000).

Some other notables still left in play are bracelet winner Konstantin Puchkov (367,000), Justin Liberto (337,000), Marvin Rettenmaier (316,000), Scott Cole (243,000), and Arthur Morris (147,000).

The blinds will be starting off at 5,000/10,000 with a 1,000 ante. The day will have all 60-minute levels, with a 15-minute break after evert two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after the sixth level. The Day 3 action will be kicking off at 12 p.m. and the tournament will not stop until a winner is crowned.
