Two-Time WSOP Bracelet Winner David “Bakes” Baker Headlines $1,500 Triple Draw Final Table
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.
