Tsong Lin Leads Event #55: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Final Table
Welcome to Day 3 coverage of Event #55: $1,500 Seven Card Stud.
The starting field of 298 players is down to just seven hopefuls, each looking to capture the first-place prize of $96,907 and a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
On top of the chip counts to begin the day is Tsong Lin, holding a hefty 11-big-bet lead over his closest competitor. Second in chips is Yueqi Zhu, who is at his second final table of the summer. This marks Zhu's 10th WSOP final table, and he will be looking finally to capture that elusive bracelet.
Also still in the hunt is Tom Koral, who notched his seventh cash of the 2017 WSOP with his run in this event. Just last week, Koral finished fourth in the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. and will no doubt be looking to improve upon that finish and capture his first bracelet.
Here are the final table seating assignments and chip counts:
|Brasilia 1||1||Daniel Mogavero||163,000|
|Brasilia 1||2||Tom Koral||147,000|
|Brasilia 1||3||Cheryl Denzik||304,000|
