When it comes to WSOP bracelet hunts Nicolas Fierro had a few close calls this Summer. The man from Chile finished 3rd in the $5,000 Shootout for $198,096 and then finished a very respectable 34th place in the Main Event itself for $242,636. He has just been moved to the left of former chip leader Roberto Romanello. Notice the use of the word former! It appears Fierro has settled in quite nicely and has taken some chips from the Welshman and has now become our new chip leader. Here he is in action against Victor Ramdin.
There was a raise by Ramdin in first position and Romanello and Fierro called in the blinds. The flop was and the action checked around to Fierro who bet 3,000 and only Ramdin called. The turn of was checked through and the river brought a little bit more action. Fierro bet 6,200 but Ramdin raised it up to 18,000. Fierro had a rye smile on his face and looked like he was going to call before eventually folding. Ramdin flipped over the lone and there were a few smirks around the table
