Friday July 1,2011 : Wsop Event 49: $2,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball was delivering exciting poker in the early hours of Friday morning in Vegas, with just two players left at level 27 from a starting field of 310.
Justin Bonomo had the advantage on 1,550,000 against Leonard Martin's 768,000 as the two fought for the bracelet in an exciting heads up that began when David Bach headed for the cashier after being eliminated in the third spot just on midnight.
The third day of action in the event had started with 13 players still in contention and Jason Mercier in the lead and looking for his third career bracelet. It was not to be, with Mercier falling along with other stellar players like Eli Elezra, Scott Seiver, Shawn Buchanan, Jon Turner, and Galen Hall.
There may be sufficient time in this day to decide the winner, but both finalists are accomplished players with wide experience.
