Owen Bags Day 1 Chip Lead in Event #34: $1,500 2-7 Triple Draw

Adam Owen

After a slow start to the day, Adam Owen blazed through the field of 285 entries to take home the Day 1 chip lead in Event #34: $1,500 2-7 Triple Draw.

The British mixed-game pro will lead the remaining field of 76 players into Monday's Day 2 with 43 of those returning players reaching the money and earning a $2,434 guaranteed payday. They'll all be aiming much higher though, of course, with $87,837 going to the winner, along with the WSOP gold bracelet.

Owen's day started on the wrong foot as he dropped below 20,000 chips within the first two levels, but with plenty of time still to go, Owen steadily chipped up, then won a huge multiway pot midway through the day with number one against numbers two and three that vaulted him into the chip lead for the first time.

Owen would be challenged for the top spot by several players, including Ian Johns, who peaked at over 200,000, but fell to 140,500 by night's end.

A few players made a late charge in the day's final levels to also put themselves in contention entering Day 2, including Amin Ahmed (229,500), Brian Yoon (226,500), Matt Grapenthien (210,000), Daniel Anton (207,500), David Funkhouser (204,500), and Cory Zeidman (198,000).

Jon Turner and Vladimir Peck were among the chip leaders for a good part of the early stages, but by night's end both had fallen, along with several other notables, including Barry Greenstein, Vanessa Kade, Shaun Deeb, and Chino Rheem.

The players will return to the Amazon room at 2:00 pm local time Monday and play ten one-hour levels.

Stay tuned to PokerNews for all the action from this and every World Series of Poker event from the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

Greenstein Hanging By a Thread

Barry Greenstein is trying to survive to Day 2 but was all-in with a very short stack in a recent three-way pot with Brian Hastings and Dan Shak.

On the final draw, both Shak and Greenstein were pat with Hastings still drawing one. Shak bet the end and Hastings folded.

Both Greenstein and Shak showed       to split the pot and chop up Hastings' chips in the pot.

Greenstein Survives All-In

Barry Greenstein

Most of Barry Greenstein's stack was already in the middle before the final draw, which he patted against Dan Shak.

Greenstein bet his last 2,500 chips and got a call from Shak.

Dan Shak:      

Shak separated the nine away from his other cards, saying he was drawing to the wheel since the second draw, but couldn't get there to pip Greenstein's number two.

Owen Surging Again

Adam Owen

Pre-draw, the player in the cutoff raised and Adam Owen three-bet on the button. His opponent called.

Owen stood pat after his opponent drew two. Owen's opponent check-called a bet, then patted his own hand. Owen broke his hand, drawing one.

Owen then called a bet from his opponent and drew one once again versus the pat hand.

Owen's opponent checked after that final draw, Owen bet, and he received a call.

Owen showed down       for the winner, then won another pot off the same opponent shortly after to finish him off.

Owen's stack is back as a challenger for end-of-night chip lead at 142,000.

Deeb Saves 600; Loses It Shortly After

Shaun Deeb

With several bets in the middle and facing a bet and a raise in front of him with just 600 chips left, Shaun Deeb opted to fold and save those chips for his big blind in the next hand.

Deeb would win that pot, boosting his stack slightly, but in the next hand after that, from the small blind, he put the last of his chips in drawing two against Matthieu Rodriguez in the big blind, and another opponent in early position.

Deeb's opponents checked down the drawing rounds, and by the final draw, Deeb patted with both his opponents drawing one.

Deeb announced he had a queen low, but Rodriguez made a       on the end to take the pot and eliminate Deeb.
