Danny Wong cruised through the day in dominating fashion to take an almost 600,000 chip cushion into Monday’s final day of Event #57: $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Championship.

The day began with 43 players following the end of late registration, making for a total of 90 entries and a prize pool of $746,000. Only eight players remain, with just one besides Wong over a million in chips. Brian Yoon holds that distinction (1,170,000), while Wil Wilkinson is not far behind with 945,000.

The night played a bit past the expected end time because bubble play was extended before dinner break, with the final 15 players choosing to postpone dinner until the bubble burst.

A few hands past the scheduled dinner time, Anthony Zinno became the bubble boy as he was eliminated in a hand versus Joao Vieira.

Once the bubble burst, those that made the money but didn’t survive the night included Mike Matusow (14th - $16,552), Shaun Deeb (13th - $16,552), Daniel Zack (12th - $20,057), Michael Trivett (11th - $20,057), Nathan Gamble (10th - $20,057), and Dan Smith (9th - $24,910).

Plenty of other stars unfortunately fell short of the money including Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, Jake Schwartz, and Adam Owen.

For those that survived the day and will play for the bracelet Monday, they’ll all be chasing Wong, who seemingly couldn’t lose a hand, even when challenged by Yoon who was the only person who could conceivably catch him as the night went on.

Play will resume at 2:00 pm local time on the outer feature tables of the Thunderdome. They’ll begin on Level 18 with blinds of 10,000 and 20,000 and betting limits of 20,000 and 40,000, and play down to a winner, who will take home $240,341 and that highly sought after WSOP gold bracelet.

Stay tuned to PokerNews for all the action from this and every event from the 2021 World Series of Poker.

• Nível 17
Mike Thorpe
Mike Thorpe

Mike Thorpe raised from late position and Joao Vieira called from one of the blinds. Both players drew two cards.

Vieira checked the first draw and called a bet from Thorpe.

Vieira drew two cards.

"Are you pat?" Thorpe asked. "Because I am."

"Are you bluffing?" Vieira replied.

"No."

Vieira checked the second draw and called another bet from Thorpe. Vieira took one card on the third draw.

"Do you know what the fun thing about my hand is?" Thorpe continued. "I'm still pat. Are you drawing live is the question."

Vieira bet after the third draw and Thorpe snap-called.

"Fours," Vieira said.

"Fours!?" Thorpe shouted. "Why are you betting fours!"

Thorpe turned over {8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-} to take the pot with a number 11.

"I was going to check back," Thorpe promised.

Mike Thorpe "Foda-se"

• Nível 17
Mike Thorpe
Mike Thorpe

Mike Thorpe was recently all-in for his tournament life against Portuguese star Joao Vieira.

The action saw Vieira raise the button and Thorpe call in the big blind from a shrinking stack.

Each player then drew two cards, and Thorpe led out with a bet, which Vieira called.

Thorpe then drew one while Vieira took two. Thorpe continued betting and was then raised all-in by Vieira. Thorpe called, with his tournament life at risk.

He was in great shape though as he patted his hand versus Vieira's one-card draw. Thorpe turned over {7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, which Vieira was drawing dead to.

As the hand played out, Thorpe asked Vieira to teach him the Portuguese version of a certain word that starts with 'F' if he won, which Vieira told him was "foda-se". Throughout the day Thorpe had been happily announcing the other word when he won a pot, but in this instance, in honour of his defeated Portuguese tablemate, Thorpe bellowed "I foda-se!!", which echoed throughout the almost empty Amazon room.

Gamble's Monumental Moment

• Nível 17
Nathan Gamble
Nathan Gamble

"This is a monumental moment," Gamble said to the table as he raised from under the gun. There was not much acknowledgement from the table of the moment and action folded around to Joao Vieira on the big blind. Gamble had around 55,000 left and Vieira was thinking it over.

Mike Thorpe began to question the players in the hand.

"What is going through your mind right now?"

Gamble explained that they were thinking about how the bets would play out, and at what point in the hand he might commit all of his chips.

"I don't think," Thorpe said.

On the first draw, Gamble took two and Vieira drew three. Vieira bet and Gamble called.

Both players took one on the second draw and checked.

On the third draw, both players took one. Vieira checked and Gamble bet. He had just one 5,000 chip behind.

Vieira thought it over.

"This is a good spot for a bluff," he said as he called.

Gamble turned over {8-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-} and Vieira mucked his hand.

Michael Trivett offered support to Gamble.

"Us gingers are hard to kill."

"Yes! Make sure that ends up on PokerNews," Gamble said.

Chip Leaders Tangle; Wong Comes Out on Top

• Nível 17

Chip leader Danny Wong continues to surge, this time at the expense of the player second in chips, Brian Yoon.

First, Wong raised in early position and was called by Yoon in the big blind.

Yoon drew three, one, and one while Wong drew two, two and then patted.

Yoon bet all three streets including the final street despite Wong having patted his hand while he had just drawn one.

Wong called each street, including the last bet, where Yoon declared "pair", and Wong showed {10-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-}.

Wong caught Yoon snowing again shortly after, when Yoon patted his hand and Wong drew one on the end. Yoon bet, and again was called by Wong.

"Bluff" said Yoon. Wong then showed a winning {8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-}
