The third and final day of Event #72: $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed will play out Thursday afternoon when chipleader, Ryan Leng, Yuval Bronshtein, and Kevin Iacofano return for action at 2 p.m. with just 15 players remaining.
Bronshtein, like everyone but Leng, will be hunting for his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet. Hailing from Israel, Bronshtein has over $1.1 million in career WSOP earnings but has never finished better than fourth place in any event. Iacofano's story is much of the same. Over $800,000 in WSOP earnings but no bracelet to show for it. Iacofano does have a runner-up and two third-place finishes in the last three years.

Leng returns to action with a sizeable chip lead and his sites set on his second WSOP gold bracelet. Leng has been near the top of the counts for much of the event thus far, rising to the top early on Day 1, and maintaining the position throughout play on both days. Leng took down a big pot in the final level on Day 2 from Takashi Ogura. Leng flopped a king-high flush and got two big bets paid out on the turn and river before Ogura mucked the river.
Just a couple weeks removed from the taste of victory, Leng will try and keep the heater going this afternoon. Leng captured the title and hardware along with $272,765 in Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Bounty on June 28th.
Blinds will be 5,000/10,000 when the cards get back in the air and the action will continue until the last player is standing. Stay tuned to the blog as PokerNews will be on the floor providing live coverage until the last card comes off the deck and the WSOP's latest champion is crowned.
