Daniel Negreanu was bracelet hunting; he'd already scored one this year and he only had to get through Eli Elezra to do it! Winning Event 59 $2,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball gave Elezra his second bracelet as well as $173,236, and kept Negreanu at bay in his bracelet quest.

Place Name Prize Money
1Eli Elezra$173,236
2Daniel Negreanu$107,055
3Brian Brubaker$70,743
4David Chiu$48,077
5David "ODB" Baker$33,399
6Scott Seiver$23,698

Just 10 players made it to the final day after a field of 282 took to the green-felt wars. A short-stacked Mike Watson busted early in 10th place, three-time bracelet winner Michael Mizrachi (ninth), Alexander Condon (eighth), and Eric Wasserson (seventh) hit the cashier's cage throughout the afternoon. When a six-handed final table was set, five of them had already won WSOP gold.

The final hand action started when Negreanu raised, Elezra raised, and Negreanu moved all-in. Elezra drew one and Negreanu drew two. Elezra stood pat and Negreanu drew one. Elezra stood pat and Negreanu drew one.

Elezra: {9-}{8-}{6-}{5-}{2-}
Negreanu: {8-}{6-}{4-}{3-}

Elezra had a nine. Negreanu needed a nine, seven, five, or deuce. Elezra and Negreanu sweated it together, and Negreanu said "that's not good." Elezra then let out a ‘Eli-happy’ noise and Negreanu turned over {k-}.
