Day 2 of Event #36: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball began with 38 players remaining from the starting field of 241 entrants. Among them were bracelet winners Brian Rast, Eli Elezra, and Phil Hellmuth. However, none were able to reach the final table.

Among those still in the field is German football star Max Kruse, as well as 2010 WSOP November Niner Joseph Cheong.
