It was a fast-paced, busy day on Day 1 of Event #28: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw as 61 players advanced from a field of 326 runners, putting the event relatively close to the money with 49 places paid out.

The player with the best chance of locking up that money, at least as far as chip stack goes, is Mark Roland. The East Coast mixed game player managed to run his 7,500 starting stack up to 116,600 by day's end, making him the leader by far of the remaining runners. Jordan Siegel sits in second with 104,100.

Roland faced off with a number of tough players, but even the likes of Justin Bonomo, Shaun Deeb, Sylvain Loosli and Chris Tryba couldn't slow him down as he rolled through the field in seemingly unstoppable fashion on Day 1. Roland had a stack of at least 50 bets from the middle of the day on.

After the third break of the day, registration closed. The winner of the event will get paid $109,967, and it will not be a repeat winner from 2016.

That's because Andrey Zaichenko, who won his first bracelet in this event last year, was among the players who busted out during the course of play. Other notable eliminations included John Monnette, Mike Leah, Berry Greenstein, Jason Mercier, Bonomo, Jesse Martin and Scott Clements.

Meanwhile, Brian Brubaker, Jon Turner, Yuval Bronshtein, Ian Johns, Rep Porter, Deeb and Rob Mizrachi all remain in the hunt with sizable stacks. Limits will be 1,200/2,400 when play resumes.

Day 2 gets going at 2 p.m. on Thursday, so come back to PokerNews to see how the first pure 2-7 triple draw event of the summer continues to develop.
