Tsong Lin Leads Going into Day 3

Day 2 of Event #55: $1,500 Seven Card Stud began with 68 players remaining from the starting field of 298 players. After 10 levels on Thursday, only seven players remain in the hunt to capture a World Series of Poker bracelet and the first-place prize of $96,907.

On top of the chip counts is Tsong Lin with 791,000. In the middle of the pack when the field was down to three tables, Lin quietly ascended the counts. By the time the unofficial final table was reached, Lin was second in leaderboard. From there he went on an absolute tear, more than doubling his stack in the last level and a half of play to bag a sizable lead of 11 big bets. Yueqi Zhu is second in chips with 512,000, while Cheryl Denzik is third with 304,000. When the players redrew for seats at the final three tables, Denzik had only a half of a big bet. She ran that up into the chip lead within two levels before settling back into the pack a bit.

Here is the lineup for Day 3:
