Coming off third and first place finishes in Friday's and Saturday's turbo series tournaments, Ryan Leng now sits alone in first place in BOTH the turbo series points standings AND the overall points standings.

He holds a one-point lead in the overall race and a 1.25-points lead in the turbo.

Chip lead going into day 2 of the 6-max. Knocked out Todd at the start of a crazy heater, which pretty much lasted all day.

Todd that dude was not berating you and you calling him a scumbag was pretty unnecessary IMO. He was literally asking WHY you would do something like bet a dry side pot (because he really doesnt get it), not questioning or berating you for it. He was just an inexperienced tourney player trying to make sense of the hand.

This race is getting epic!

I took the lead yesterday by 1.5 points and today I'm down by 1 point. I still have a few tournaments to regain the lead for "overall player" and take home $50k

$240 NLHE Sunday 12pm
$200 Turbo Sunday 6pm
$240 NLHE Monday 12pm

If I'm still in the Sunday $240 by 6pm dinner break I will register for the $200 Turbo and eat dinner at the table. Blinds go up every 15min and within 1hr almost half the field is gone. I plan to play smart and very aggressively to try and accumulate chips before the dinner break ends so I can multi-table both tournaments. Not only do they allow multi-tabling, they encourage it. They changed the dinner time to 6pm to accommodate players who want to play the $200 Turbo during dinner break to accumulate more points.

Hopefully I can get the point lead back and ship the $50k so we can keep the money flowing between our 2+2ers in the Marketplace. My investors are very happy with my performance so far with 3 Final Tables this week but this $50k would just be icing on the cake!

If anyone is interested in sweating the rest of the series with me I will giving updates every level which you can find HERE

Bull****. When I bet he initially said, "You better have him beat." The fact that he's an inexperienced tournament player doesn't change his intent or tone, which was confrontational.

I called him a scumbag after he accused me of deliberately slow rolling him later after he crai for like 3x pot on K33 and I took a while to call with AK. It was the third time he said something nasty to me.

You are the scumbag if you are "taking awhile to call" with AK heads up on an K33 check raise. if you had problems with him earlier this is a SNAP call. imo this is a slowroll cause noone or their mother ever folds. tanking it is pathetic and for show for no reason

You got me. I tank for show all the time. I wasn't thinking about the decision when a giant nit who had done nothing all day crai for 3x pot, I just wanted to look cool.

Hey Decatur217, do you give poker lessons? I don't know who this "Todd Terry" slowroller is, but you seem like someone I'd like to learn from.

No one folds AK on a K33 pot heads up. That is all I am saying. Scumbag no, slowroll not necessarily. But tanking when you KNOW you are gonna call? Thinking it through is fine but you have history with a guy who would literally do this with any King and any pair 44+, flush draw, or probably pissed off air. All of which you are miles ahead of. Why tank? Thats it.

i hear "you better have him beat" said all the time on dry side pots in both cash and tourneys. if you take that as nasty that's your prerogative, but no one else at the table including myself seemed to have this issue with him. and yeah that AK timebank call was something i didnt expect out of a superstar phenom WSOPc winner like yourself.

Someone could say "you better have him beat" jokingly or nastily. His tone was nasty. He then said, "You don't check it down when someone's all in?" Also nasty. I probably have been in less than 10 arguments with players at the table in my career. This guy was looking for a confrontation on multiple occasions.

Yes, I was the only one he was a douche to, so what? And your shove with AQ sucked.

The Ameristar is a really nice hotel by the way. Desolate location surrounded by steel mills, though.

Busted 3rd in the 6-max. Was cheapleader for a good portion of tournament and went into 3-way with 60% of the chips, so I'm tad disappointed. The bad loose-passive dude sucked out a river gutshot on the river to tilt me early. All downhill from there.

Still, it was lots of fun, and at least the kid who shipped it seemed like a solid dude.
