A final table of six players remains from the original 76 that began the day, as Peter Lynn takes the chip lead into Tuesday’s final day of play in Event #34: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw.

The most accomplished player left in the field is David “Bakes” Baker, who will enter Day 3 fifth in chips with 815,000.

Baker has a 2010 $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw bracelet to his name, along with a $10,000 HORSE bracelet from 2012. He’ll be looking to add bracelet number three to his resume when play picks up again at 2:00 p.m. local time in the Amazon room.

Lynn takes the chip lead into the day with hopes of claiming his first-ever WSOP gold in just his second-ever WSOP cash, previously finishing 120th in the 2019 $600 Deepstack event for $2,603.

Baker and Lynn will be joined Tuesday by Kristijonas Andrulis (1,665,000) who held the chip lead for large portions of the day before ending the day just shy of Lynn’s total. Andrulis holds a third-place finish in the $10,000 WSOP 2-7 Triple Draw Championship event in 2018.

Also in the field on Tuesday will be Mark Fraser (1,355,000), who has 19 WSOP cashes to his name, none however bigger than $4,474 for a 688th place finish in the 2015 Colossus tournament. He’s already surpassed that total regardless of his finishing place Tuesday.

Rounding out the final six are Stephen Deutsch (985,000) and Marc Booth (620,000), who battled back from just 45,000 in chips with two tables left.

Owen Falls Shy of Final Table

The final table was reached in the second to last level of the day when Day 1 chip leader Adam Owen finally fell in 8th place at the hands of Fraser after battling to keep his stack afloat in the later levels of the day. Owen took home $7,518 for his efforts.

Colin Wickersheim was eliminated shortly after in 7th place for $9,943, bringing the field to the six remaining players who’ll come back Tuesday to play for the $87,837 top prize and the WSOP gold bracelet.

Forty-three players made the money Monday, including such notables as Daniel Anton in 10th place for $5,805, Katherine Fleck in 16th place for $4,578, and three-time bracelet winners Ian Johns in 19th place for $3,691, Frankie O’Dell in 20th place for $3,691, and Brian Yoon in 40th place for $2,434.

Play resumes in level 26, with limits of 40,000 and 80,000, and will play down to the winner.

Raising War Between Final Table Chip Leaders

MikePatrick • Level 25: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Peter Lynn opened his small blind with a raise into Mark Fraser's big blind. Fraser responded with a three-bet, and Lynn popped him back with a rare pre-draw four-bet, which Fraser called.

Lynn patted his hand and Fraser drew two.

Fraser called a bet from Lynn, then after some deliberation opted to pat his hand behind Lynn, who again stayed pat.

Lynn continued the aggression with another bet, which sent Fraser into the tank. Eventually he opted to call and broke his hand, drawing one.

On the final betting round, Lynn again bet, and Fraser chuckled as he checked his hand.

"Same card?" Lynn commented.

"Yup" replied Fraser, who begrudgingly paid off the bet to see Lynn open up{8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-}.

Fraser said he broke a nine-low and drew another {9-} with that final draw.

Regardless of the outcome, Lynn and Fraser remain the two largest stacks at the table.

Adam Owen began the day as the chip leader, but unfortunately he won't be around for Day 3, falling just shy of the final table.

Stephen Deutsch raised in the cutoff, and Owen three-bet from the small blind, committing 75,000 of his remaining 115,000 chips. Mark Fraser called from the big blind, as did Deutsch.

Each player drew two cards, with Owen checking, Fraser betting, and then Deutsch and Owen both calling.

Owen drew two again, Fraser drew one, and Deutsch patted.

Owen and Fraser both checked to Deutsch, who bet. Owen flicked in his last 15,000 chips, and Fraser called the full 50,000 bet to start a side pot.

Owen still needed to draw one, while Fraser now patted and Deutsch broke his hand, drawing one.

Fraser bet the end and got a call from Deutsch.

Fraser showed {7-}{6-}{5-}{3-}{2-} for number two. Deutsch showed a losing {8-}{6-}{5-}{3-}{2-}, and Owen flipped over his cards and tightly squeezed them, saying he was drawing live to number one.

Owen however revealed a paired {5-}, ending his run in 8th place, while Fraser takes over the chip lead as the players merge onto the unofficial seven-handed final table.

After being left on fumes after losing a hand to Stephen Deutsch, Conrad Simpson got his last 60,000 in the middle in his small blind versus David "Bakes" Baker in the big blind.

Simpson drew three, as did Baker, eliciting a response from Simpson of "oh yeah, that's what I was hoping for!"

Each improved to a two-card draw in the second round, then both patted the final draw.

Baker showed {7-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{2-} to win the hand and send Simpson to the rail in ninth place for $7,518.
