Ryan. Leng at the World Series of Poker
Leng's first cash at the WSOP came in 2011, picking up a brace of cashes. In 2016, Leng cashed in the WSOP Main Event for the first time, finishing 433rd.
His first WSOP bracelet win came in June 2018, when he won Event #51: $1,500 NLHE Bounty for $272,765. He also final-tabled Event #72: $1,500 NLHE/PLO Mixed in the same year, finishing sixth.
In 2019, Leng cashed 15 times at the WSOP in Las Vegas, and followed that up with 11 cashes during the WSOP Online in 2020, narrowly missing out on a bracelet.
The WSOP Online returned in 2021, with Leng winning his second bracelet for $108,654. He defeated a 561-player field in Event #13: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Freezout. Apparently, Leng won this bracelet while at the bar at Red Rock Casino celebrating his wife’s birthday.
Later in 2021, the WSOP returned to Las Vegas and Leng picked up his third bracelet after a long heads-up match against Connor Drinan. He won Event #23: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix for $137,969.
“I’ve been studying mixed games lately," Leng told PokerNews. "I definitely think the final table, the final two tables, I was certainly nowhere near the best player left in the field. I ran really hot.”
