An extra day is needed to determine the champion of Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em BOUNTY, as a field of 1,983 players has been whittled down to the final four after 30 total hours of play at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. The lion's share of the $2,675,700 prize pool is still up for grabs and all eyes are on the first-place prize of $272,504 and the coveted gold bracelet that comes along with it.

Leading the last four into Day 4 is Ryan Leng with 5,440,000, followed by Estonia's Ranno Sootla (3,835,000), Austria's Christian Nolte (3,405,000) and 2013 WSOP Main Event runner-up Jay Farber (2,195,000). Leng, who has one WSOP Circuit ring to his name with more than $770,000 in WSOP cashes to date, cemented his lead in the final hand last night after sending Javier Gomez to the rail.

While Sootla and Nolte may not be known on the American circuit just yet, they have already earned some merits in Europe. Sootla sits in 8th of the Estonian all-time money list with more than $330,000 in earnings and Nolte, who is based in Vienna, Austria, has cashed for more than $280,000. Both will secure their best result thus far, as fourth place is guaranteed at least $89,079 for the efforts.

So far, 76 hands have been played on the final table and the action will recommence at 12 noon local time in the Brasilia room with Level 31 and blinds of 50,000/100,000 with a running ante of 15,000. The PokerNews live reporting team will be on the floor to provide hand-for-hand coverage until a champion is crowned.
