Event 13: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw attracted a total of 266 entries and at the end of ten levels it is Alex Foxen leading the remaining 50 players ahead of Day 2 which kicks off at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

A star-studded field was expected, and the railbirds were not left disappointed, with James Obst, Jared Bleznick, Daniel Hiraman and Chris Bjorin returning from their Mixed Triple Draw final tables yesterday, along with some major names from the world of mixed games including Benny Glaser, Paul Volpe, Shaun Deeb, Jason Mercier, and Randy Ohel.

Bleznick, Naoya Kihara and Tom Schneider all held the chip lead, before Foxen muscled his way to the top of the leaderboard, and bagged up a stack of 147,850 to take into Day 2.

Big names such as Billy Baxter Barry Greenstein both bust shortly before the end of the day, but there is still a whole host of big names left in the field including Phil Hellmuth (46,000), Anthony Zinno (51,450), Benny Glaser (56,000), Frank Kassela (35,500) and James Obst (25,575).

With 40 players making the money, the bubble is expected to bust fairly quickly on Wednesday, ensuring all players a min-cash worth $2,271. However, all 50 will be setting their sights a little further at the $89,151 and a WSOP gold bracelet that awaits them up top.

Phil Hellmuth Building Late

Nível 10 : 400/800, 200 ante
Phil Hellmuth
Phil Hellmuth

With just about an hour to go in play on Day 1 of Event #13: $1,500 2-7 No-Limit Lowball Draw, Phil Hellmuth knocked out a player to give him 55,000 and an almost certain Day 2 seat.

The action started when a player raised from middle position and Hellmuth was in the big blind.

Hellmuth leaned over and pointed at his opponent's remaining stack.

"Is that all you have left?" he asked. "I'm gonna raise."

Hellmuth put out 5,000 and his opponent called. Hellmuth stood pat with {j-}{9-}{5-}{4-}{3-}. His opponent showed {6-}{5-}{4-}{2-} and drew a {4-} to pair and was eliminated.

Billy Baxter was all in for his last 6,900 and Ben Ponzio had called.

Baxter checked, saying "I'm good."

"If you're good," said Ponzio, "Then I've got to make a decision."

In the end Ponzio stood pat and announced a ten {10-}{9-}{8-}{4-}{2-}.

"You got it," replied Baxter, showing {j-}{10-}{6-}{5-}{3-} before getting to his feet and exiting the tournament area.

"Wow. Sick play," said Jared Bleznick after Phil Hui busted a player.

According to Bleznick, Hui raised and his opponent shoved all in before Hui called.

Both players stood pat, but Hui tanked and eventually stood pat.

"He has two, three, five, seven, ten," Bleznick recounted.

Hui seemed to chuckle a little, seemingly unsure whether Bleznick was being sincere or not. Regardless, Hui stacked the pot and is now sitting just under 30,000.

John Duthie raised from the cutoff, and Felipe Ramos defended his small blind.

Ramos showed {7-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{2-} for a Number Four, beating the {9-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-} of Duthie.

"Nice hand," said Duthie, "Nice catch."

Another Former Main Event Champ and a Runner-Up Join

Nível 2 : 50/75, 25 ante
Ryan Riess from a previous event

The 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion, Ryan Riess, just hopped into the $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw. A few other recognizable faces have also joined. Erik Seidel, who finished second in the 1988 WSOP Main Event to Johnny Chan (which you probably know from the scene in Rounders), has also joined. Since that runner-up finish, Seidel has won eight WSOP gold bracelets including two No-Limit 2-7 titles.

Paul Volpe has won two WSOP events, one of his bracelets was for the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship for $253,524.

Nick Yunis has $1.3-million in tournament winnings but has yet to win a bracelet. He is currently very short-stacked and might have some trouble bouncing back since three-time bracelet winner Barry Greenstein and James Obst are also at his table.

Event #13: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Starts at 3

Ryan D'Angelo won thisevent in 2016

No-limit 2-7 might not be the most popular game, but those who love it, love it deeply. Today, Event #13 gets started and, for $1,500, players can play this great game and have a chance to win a WSOP gold bracelet.

Ryan D'Angelo won the bracelet for this event last year. It was his first bracelet and he took home $92,388 after he outlasted 279 others. Before that, Christian Pham won the bracelet in 2015. He claimed to have never played a hand of no-limit 2-7 before accidentally entering the tournament.

One of the unique things about no-limit 2-7 is that players must enter the pot with a raise, so there should be plenty of action.

Today players will play 10 one-hour levels starting at 3 p.m. Late registration will be open until 6 p.m. Players will start with 7,500 and each player can reenter once.
