WSOP Event #59 Day 1 – Chang Leading 2-7 Event

Michael Mizrachi

With the start of the 59th event at the World Series Of Poker came the realisation that there are just three more bracelet events to go after this one, meaning we are inching ever closer to putting the series into the history books.

The $2.5k 2-7 Triple Draw event managed to attract a solid field of 282 and finished with just a third of them as 88 managed to do enough to secure a place in Day 2.

At the very top were a number of big name players as we see Michael Mizrachi, David Baker and Justin Bonomo all occupying spots in the top ten but it is Jui Jen Chang that leads them as he has bagged up 66,000 chips throughout the first day.


It is not only the top ten that is laiden with world renowned players, but they are scattered throughout the entire field as Daniel Negreanu, Scott Seiver, Jesse Martin, Tom Schneider and Mike Leah are all still in with a shot going into Day 2.

Of course there had to be some casualties though and not all of the bigger names were spared in this event. The three big Phil’s in Ivey, Hellmuth and Galfond were all sent to the rail and were joined by the likes of Barry Greenstein and Greg Raymer throughout the course of the action.

The Current Top Ten

Jui Jen Chang – 66,000

Michael Mizrachi – 58,300

David “ODB” Baker – 46,900

Ryan Tepen – 43,900

Justin Bonomo – 42,600

Dale Townsend – 41,100

Marco Johnson – 40,000

Farzad Bonyadi – 40,000

Lenny Martin – 39,500

Jon Turner – 37,700
