Glaser Leads; Negreanu and Schwartz Return for Day 3 of Event #49: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship
Benny Glaser leads the eight players that will return for the finale of Event #49: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship at the 2021 World Series of Poker. The final eight will return tomorrow live at PokerGO for the opportunity to take home the WSOP gold bracelet and $297,051 for the victory.
Glaser's last WSOP title came when he went back-to-back in the $1,500 and $10,000 Omaha 8-or-Better events in 2016. He is seeking gold bracelet number four, and he is joined in the final group by fellow bracelet winners Johannes Becker, Farzad Bonyadi, Daniel Negreanu, and Julien Martini. This is Glaser's fifth cash at the 2021 WSOP.
Negreanu will enter Day 3 in the middle of the pack, and the six-time champion will look for an opportunity to jump into contention. He came into Day 2 with one of the smaller stacks and fought hard to bag over a half-million chips with which he will return for the finale.
Jake Schwartz continues his red-hot 2021 WSOP with his 10th cash and his fifth final table. He will return for an opportunity to chase his first WSOP bracelet after several near misses. Schwartz joins Ben Diebold and Dustin Dirksen as the players that will try to win their first title.
