Just ten players remain, with Ryan Leng taking a solid chip lead into Day 4 of Event #60: $50,000 Poker Players Championship.
Leng will bring 4,500,000 chips into Wednesday’s action, with Josh Arieh the only other player over three million (3,025,000).
Those ten players are all in the money, following a nearly 90-minute bubble that ran through the dinner break before Robert Campbell was finally eliminated by Leng to give the final ten a guaranteed min-cash of $82,623.

Those that missed the money included Adam Friedman, Alex Livingston, and Christopher Vitch who each entered the day with top five chip stacks. $25,000 HORSE champion Jesse Klein fell two spots before the bubble, and current WSOP Player of the Year leader, Anthony Zinno was also eliminated just before the bubble.
Daniel Negreanu managed to survive and make the money after suffering a brutal cooler versus Chris Brewer that made him the short stack on the bubble. “Kid Poker” then managed to run his stack up to 780,000 by night’s end, keeping him in contention Wednesday.
The final ten players will return to the Amazon room at 2:00 pm local time to play down to the final five for the official streamed final table. The players will have a day off Thursday, before the final table is played out on Friday, where they’ll play for the top prize of $954,020.
