World Series of Poker -- Eli Elezra Wins $2,500 Triple Draw Event
Elezra Defeats Daniel Negreanu Heads-Up For Second Career Bracelet
Event no. 59, the $2,500 triple draw tournament at the 2013 World Series of Poker, attracted 282 runners, creating a total prize pool of $641,550.
The specialty game drew an expected field of notable players and the final table was no different. In fact, only one of the final six players did not have a WSOP bracelet on his tournament resume.
“This second one means a lot,” said Elezra. “I mean, I do not have five or six bracelets like some of the rest to them, but for me this means a lot. I have been playing poker professionally for twenty years now, so this is what it’s about.”
Though Negreanu did fall short of his sixth career bracelet, he did earn 570 Card Player Player of the Year points, pushing him into first place overall, taking the top spot from Paul Volpe. Scott Seiver, who finished in sixth place, now sits in 18th place in the rankings.
The final table also featured David Chiu, who fell short of his second bracelet of the summer, as well as Brian Brubaker and David Baker.
Here’s a look at the final table results.
