Day 3 Begins With Griffin in the Lead

Day 3 of Event 60: $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball (No-Limit) begins in an hour or so, and Ashton Griffin is your chip leader with 638,000 chips. Trailing him is Nick Schulman (558,000), and then the next closest player is John Juanda (363,000).

Juanda is widely renowned as one of the best 2-7 Single Draw players in the world, and if he makes the final table today, it would mark the fourth year in a row that he's done so. He defeated Phil Hellmuth heads up last year, winning the event and $367,170, and the two previous years he finished fourth and fourth.

That's impressive.

Schulman was also at the final table of this event last year, and he won the event in 2009, taking home $279,751 and his first and only gold bracelet.

Larry Wright, who won Event 30: $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball, is eighth in chips, and Andy Bloch, who won Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud, is in tenth. If one of these two short-stacked players is able to run it up, make the final table, and win, then they would become the first and perhaps only multiple bracelet winner of 2012.

Griffin only has three WSOP cashes, and no final table appearances, so this is his first opportunity to make a big splash.

The cards will be in the air at 2 p.m. local time, so be sure to keep it locked to PokerNews for all of your live updates from the World Series of Poker!
