Nancy Nguyen Leads Limit Hold'em Day 3, Greenstein Eyes Fourth Bracelet
With just 15 players remaining, Event #24: $1,500 Limit Hold'em has entered its final day with each of them with a chance of securing the title and $177,985 in prize money.
Nancy Nguyen is the chip leader at the start of the day, but the eyes of the poker world will be drawn to Barry Greenstein who is in the hunt for his fourth WSOP gold bracelet and his first since 2008. If he achieves this feat, it will be his first bracelet in a hold'em event, with the three previous coming in 2-7 NL single draw, pot-limit Omaha and razz.
Joining him in the field is Michael Reed who continued to hold the lead until the final two levels of the day. Meanwhile, Ray Henson will be trying to add a bracelet to his four WSOP Circuit rings, and Mark Bassaly will be looking to continue his streak of knocking out players, having eliminated four people late on in Day 2 to surge up the leaderboard.
