Stephen Song entered the day with nearly half the chips in play at the beginning of Day 3. A huge advantage that he used to win his first bracelet even if it was not as easy as imagined, Ryan Laplante and Scot Masters fighting their best to win the tournament as well.

Stephen Song “It’s surreal. I don’t even know. The money’s insane. WSOP summer is where you can actually make life-changing money. It’s pretty unreal.”
