Welcome to PokerNews' live coverage of Event #5: $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw! This is the first draw game on this year's schedule and it will surely have a field stacked with notable professional players.
This is the first of two triple draw events this summer with another sporting a $1,500 buy-in coming a week from today. The $10,000 buy-in format is new for the 2014 WSOP, as last year the only 2-7 Triple Draw event was a $2,500 buy-in. That event drew 282 entries and the cream rose to the top of the field. The final table included the likes of Scott Seiver, David "ODB" Baker, and David Chiu. Eli Elezra and Daniel Negreanu played heads up for the bracelet with Elezra ultimately coming out on top. He pocketed $173,236 for his victory and earned his second gold bracelet.
The field will play ten 60-minute levels today with a 15-minute break after every two levels. There will be no dinner break. This will lead to players bagging up around 3 a.m.
