Ryan Leng won a World Series of Poker event Thursday afternoon. Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty paid  $272,765.

"It’s amazing. It’s just so much fun. Yesterday and today, it was such a whirlwind. I was chip leader, I was short stacked, then I was the chip leader again. I played against some very tough opponents. [Ranno] Sootla, the guy I got heads-up with, is one of the toughest players I’ve ever played against. It’s a lot of fun to have to go through someone that good to win my first bracelet."

Leng is not only a successful player. He also coaches poker. "It’s amazing," he said of the coaching experience. "It’s forced me to analyze my own game. I still get coaching, too. Talking poker with these brilliant players is absolutely invaluable. I have a lot of really talented students. They’ll play hands in interested, creative ways that I didn’t think about. So as much as I’m coaching them, I’m still learning from them."
