WSOP Event #57: Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship

Event #57 of the 2021 WSOP is the $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship. This fixed-limit lowball championship started at 3 pm on Saturday, October 30 and ran for three days. This is a classic poker variant with a long WSOP history, though it featured one of the series’ smallest fields — almost entirely big-name pros — and is now considered a “bracelet chaser” event.

The 2021 WSOP Event #57 $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship attracted only 90 players, creating a prize pool of $839,350. As usual with these specialty high buy-in tournaments, the field was packed with well-known poker pros and WSOP bracelet winners. Brian Yoon was one of the bracelet winners in question, with three past wins before this event. He now has four bracelet wins after locking down the victory in this tournament and earning his first bracelet since 2017 and the event’s first-place cash prize of $240,341.

Yoon scored all of his first three bracelet wins in No-Limit Hold’em events. He won the $1,111 Little One for the One Drop tournament, taking home $663,727 in 2013. He also hit first place in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed event in 2014, adding $633,341 to his career earnings. Finally, he won the $1,500 MONSTER STACK tournament in 2017 for $1,094,349. The Southern California native has pulled down more than $5 million in tournament winnings so far in his career, according to his Hendon Mob profile. That impressive figure includes 52 cashes worth more than $3.4 million in WSOP events.

In 2019, the United Kingdom’s Luke Schwartz picked up his own long-sought first bracelet in the limit deuce-to-seven tourney. Schwartz bested a 100-entry field to earn $273,336.
