After ten more levels in Event #69 $1,500 Razz just 10 players remain to battle it out for $132,957 in prize money and a WSOP gold bracelet.

Leading the way is David "ODB" Baker (614,000) who is looking for his second WSOP bracelet since taking down the $2,500 8-Game in 2012.

Close behind him is Wendy Freedman (594,000) who is looking to reach her second WSOP final table after finishing seventh in last year's Ladies Event.

Also in the mix is Phil Hellmuth, but he will start the final day as the short stack with just 116,000. Also short is Yordan Petrov, despite doubling in the last hand of the night against Grzegorz Wyraz.

Petrov got all in showing {a-}{a-}{k-}{5-} against Wyraz's {2-}{4-}{q-}{j-}. On seventh street Petrov had improved to such an extant that he needed to hit anything below a Queen to survive. Petrov picked up a {j-} and will return with 177,000.

At the start of the day it was Matt Grapenthein who led the way. With play around 40 eliminations from the money, it took a while until the bubble was reached.

And when it was reached in Level 13, it was Johnny Landreth who was eliminated when his ten-nine was bested by the ten-seven of Matthew Schreiber.

A min-cash was worth $2,261, with the likes of Allen Kessler and Tom Schneider among the recipients. Other notable bustouts included Brandon Shack-Harris (46th - $2,551), Mike Matusow (40th - $2,818,) and James Obst (38th - $2,818).

Obst missed out on the chance to add the $1,500 Razz title to the $10,000 Razz Championship he won earlier this summer.

Grapenthien was also a casualty, eliminated in 34th place for $2,818, and just missing out on a ladder where the likes of Jason Mercier (30th) finished.

There were still a bunch of big names at the three-table redraw, but the field quickly thinned with Adam Owen (23rd - $3,703), Roland Israelashvili (22nd - $3,703) and Mike Ross (21st - $3,703) all departing.

By the end of the night play was one elimination short of the money, with big names still remaining to battle it out when they return at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Phil Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {j-}{7-}{7-}{5-} / {x-}
Grzegorz Wyraz: {x-}{x-} / {6-}{9-}{k-} - fold

Benny Glaser held the betting lead for the entire hand. He bet on fourth street and got two callers. He bet again on fifth, and Phil Hellmuth was the lone caller.

At this point, Glaser said something to Hellmuth, and it sounded like Hellmuth said, "If I beat you on this hand, you can berate me. Unless you have fours."

Glaser bet again on sixth and seventh, and Hellmuth called. Glaser showed {7-}{3-}{2-} for a seven, and Hellmuth mucked.

Jake Schwartz Doubles Through Wendy Freedman

will_shill • Nível 19: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Action was all in on third street, and the boards ran out as follows:

Jake Schwartz: {3-}{7-} / {5-}{6-}{3-}{5-} / {x-}
Wendy Freedman: {a-}{3-} / {6-}{3-}{a-}{j-} / {x-}

Freedman drew first, the {2-}, meaning Schwartz just needed to make a low better than Freedman's jack. Schwartz drew a {2-} and made his seven-low to double up.
