Welcome to our Day 3 coverage of Event #43, the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball. The starting field of 87 is down to seven players, each looking to capture the coveted World Series of Poker gold bracelet, as well as the $253,524 first-place prize.
Among the final seven players are a combined 15 WSOP bracelets, led by Layne Flack with six. With a win today, Flack would move into a tie for ninth on the all-time bracelet winner list with Billy Baxter and Men Nguyen. Flack last won a bracelet in 2008 and this marks his fourth cash of the 2013 WSOP. Next on the list is Jeff Lisandro with five bracelets. Lisandro dominated the 2009 WSOP winning three bracelets, but hasn't won one since in Las Vagas. Today marks his second final table this series. John "World" Hennigan is aiming for his third bracelet win, last doing so in 2004.
David "Bakes" Baker is at his fourth WSOP final table of the summer and is looking to capture that elusive third bracelet in the game that started it all for him. In 2010, Baker won this very event. Konstantin Puchkov rounds out the bracelet winners, while Jesse Martin and Jon Turner are looking for their first bracelets after a combined 54 cashes prior to this event.
