Jared Jaffee Leads 23 into Final Day of WSOP Circuit Rio Las Vegas

Jared Jaffee is leading 23 players into the final day of the WSOP Circuit Rio Las Vegas Main Event, eyeing his second gold ring

The WSOP Circuit Rio Las Vegas Main Event is heading into its final day with 23 survivors from an overall field of 952 entrants. Poker pro Jared Jaffee is leading the pack of hopefuls and is attacking the top for his second gold ring from the series.

The $1,700 buy-in Main Event kicked off at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas this past Saturday with the first of two starting flights. As mentioned above, a total of 952 contenders registered into the tournament during its two Day 1s. Of them, only 202 made it into Day 2, which was played on Monday at the host casino.

The event’s field generated a prize pool of $1,442,280. The prize money was split into payouts for the top 99 finishers. The money bubble burst during the fourth level played on Day 2. Layne Flack became the unfortunate bubble boy after opening with queen-jack suited and clashing into his opponent’s aces. Each of the remaining 99 players at that point in play was guaranteed min-cash of $2,957.

Day 3 action starts today at 1 pm local time with the 23 hopefuls who are still in contention. They will all leave with a cash of no less than $10,038. However, they are certainly eyeing the top prize of $274,030 and the accompanying WSOP Circuit gold ring.

Jared Jaffee Vies for Second WSOP Circuit Main Event Title

Jaffee won his first piece of WSOP Circuit gold back in 2017 when he bested the field of the Main Event at The Bicycle Casino. Apart from the piece of jewelry, the player scooped a $211,220 payout.

Jaffee is also a proud holder of one WSOP gold bracelet. He won the gold during the 2014 edition of the popular poker series. He took down a $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Mixed Max tournament to claim the bracelet and a first-place prize of $405,428.

The poker pro from New York is now heading into the final day of the Main Event at Rio to test his skills and do his best to add another trophy to his collection. Jaffee is leading the final 23 players with a stack of 2.36 million, good for 47 big blinds.

The start-of-the-day chip leader is closely followed by Roger Campbell with 2.325 million and Dan Park with 2.075 million. Kent Lundmark with 2.035 million and WSOP Circuit regular Nick Pupillo with 1.925 million round out top five of the temporary leaderboard.

There is just one more former gold bracelet left, aside from Jaffee, and multiple former gold ring winners. Kyle Cartwright, a holder of one gold bracelet from the WSOP series, is vying for his ninth WSOP Circuit gold ring. Three-time ring winner Steven Snyder is also still in contention.

Action resumes at 1 pm local time at the host venue. The remaining 23 players will play down to a champion.
