The penultimate day of Event # 18: $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball began with 104 players remaining, all looking to bag up a stack at the end of the night and keep their hope alive for that coveted WSOP gold bracelet and the $134,390 in cash that comes along with it! After ten 60-minute levels of play, the action was down to a dozen hopefuls still in contention for the title, with Jason Daly (1,595,000) leading the pack.
Second in chips and attempting to add a fourth WSOP gold bracelet to his collection is Brian Yoon (1,080,000). He is no stranger to running deep in WSOP events and will look to use his experience as he works his way towards a victory.
Meanwhile, Gary Benson (935,000) and Joao Vieira (435,000) are in contention for their second bracelets, while Mike Gorodinsky (130,000) has his eyes on his third bracelet.
A few notable bracelet winners that made the money, but did not make it to the final day included Johannes Becker (13th place), Carol Fuchs (15th place), and Nicholas Seiken (19th place).
