Betil Leads the Pack as Day 3 of the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball Event Begins
Making the final day of a bracelet event will get anyone's heart beating, especially with $164,243 up for grabs for first place. Seventeen players find themselves there as Day 3 of Event #17: $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball begins today at the 2022 World Series of Poker in its new home at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas.
Bariscan Betil sits on top of the leaderboard, amassing 1,190,000 chips after two days of play. Betil seeks to put his first gold bracelet on the proverbial mantle, but he will have to contend with a profuseness of experience behind him on the leaderboard.
Jerry Wong (1,140,000) sits just behind Betil on the leaderboard. Wong has made nine World Series of Poker final tables, but his search for a gold bracelet has eluded him. He looks to change that today with a commanding chip stack.
Behind them sit a class of estimable players that have accumulated an impressive collective 15 total gold bracelets. Andrew Brown (1,010,000), Frank Kassela (750,000), Matthew Schreiber (740,000), John Monnette (600,000), Alex Epstein (475,000), Daniel Strelitz (425,000), Galen Hall 310,000), Steve Zolotow (310,000), and Ralph Perry (80,000) are those bracelet holders who will look to add to their collection.
Players will continue to play 60-minute levels with 15-minute breaks every two levels. Play will pick up in the Bally's Event Center at 2 p.m. local time.
