Phil Hellmuth in the hunt for 16th bracelet

Just ten players remain in Event #31: No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw, with Rep Porter in prime position to get his hands on his fourth WSOP gold bracelet and the $84,851 first-place prize that goes along with it.

It won't be plain sailing for Porter as the remaining field contains a plethora of accomplished players, including Ryan Riess, Dario Sammartino, Chris Vitch, and of course Phil Hellmuth — who comes into Day 3 second in chips. Hellmuth will surely be focused on winning his record-setting 16th bracelet. A victory for the "Poker Brat" would be his first in the 2-7 variant. To date, Hellmuth has won 13 bracelets in Hold'em and two in Razz.
