Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) for Day 3 of the Event #21: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship where the 91-entrant field is down to the final table of seven players.

Leading the final table is WSOP bracelet winner Jean-Robert Bellande with 1,231,000 in chips. Although Bellande peaked at a higher chip count on Day 2, he remained composed and battled hard to end the day as chip leader heading into his fourth WSOP final table. Sitting behind Bellande is WSOP bracelet winner Prahlad Friedman, who is at his second final table following his bracelet in 2003.

Third overall is Paul Volpe with 938,000 in chips, and looking to capture his fourth WSOP bracelet, and second in this very event following his victory in 2014 for $254,524. Since 2013, Volpe has cashed in this event six of seven years. Four-time WPT Champions Club member Darren Elias sits fourth overall with 887,000, and although he is the most successful player in WPT history, he has yet to taste victory on the WSOP felt.

1993 WSOP Main Event champion Jim Bechtel is fifth overall and is at his second WSOP final table, while behind Bechtel is Day 1 chip leader and Brazilian musician Pedro Bromfman. Rounding out the final table is Vince Musso, who has five No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw cashes at the WSOP to his name.

Darren Elias raised to 35,000 on the button and Prahlad Friedman defended his big blind and drew a card. So did Elias and Friedman came out betting with 60,000. Elias released.

Then, Elias opened again for 35,000 and Vince Musso called in the big blind. Again, both took one, and again, Elias' opponent came out firing, this time 100,000. Once again, Elias gave it up, this time after more thought.

Nice One for Bechtel

Niveau 17 : 6,000/12,000, 18,000 ante

Pedro Bromfman raised to 30,000 from under the gun and Darren Elias three-bet to 100,000 from the next seat over. Jim Bechtel called from the big blind and Bromfman called as well.

Each drew one card, and it was checked around.

Bechtel tabled {10-}{8-}{5-}{3-}{2-}, both Bromfman and Elias mucked and Bechtel won the pot.

Bromfman Drags Two

Niveau 17 : 6,000/12,000, 18,000 ante

Action folded to Pedro Bromfman in the small blind. He shoved for about 230,000 and Darren Elias folded.

Then, Bromfman opened for 30,000 on the button. Both blinds gave him action and pitched two. Bromfman needed one. Elias led out for 60,000, Jean-Robert Bellande folded and Bromfman called pretty quickly.

Either Elias indicated it was a bluff or he announced a weaker hand than Bromfman, who tabled {9-}{8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}.
