Finally, we’re covering Event #34: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw which attracted a total number of 284 players, generating a total prizepool of $380,475.
David Baker was the victor in this tournament, taking home his share of $87,837 from the $380,475 prizepool as well as his THIRD gold bracelet which is a fantastic achievement!
Bakers previous 2 gold bracelets came from 2010 $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Single Draw and 2012 $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. making this his first official WSOP win in 9 years. No doubt David will continue playing and look to pursue his 4th gold bracelet and we wish him all the best on this venture!
Even though this is Bakers first WSOP win in 9 years, he has till had great success in previously finishing in the top 10 at events 15 times. Even though these weren’t 1st place victories they’re still amazing achievements nonetheless!
