Hanh Tran bags his very first WSOP bracelet in this year's Event #29 $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw after being able to outlast a field of 356 players. Along with the title and bracelet, he's also won the first prize cash money worth $117,282.

The prize money is by far the 35-year-old Austrian's biggest score in his poker career, though he mainly plays cash games. He was able to make an impressive comeback from a 16-to-1 chip disadvantage during the heads-up play with Oscar Johannson from Sweden.

Tran said after his win, "I love deuce-to-seven. It's one of my favorite games. I took my time and waited for my spots."

This event is Tran's second final table finish for the year 2018.

Tran went into the final day of the event as the chip leader with 7 players left. Johannson made the first knockout of the day when he defeated Jared Bleznick to set the official final table. It was Yong Wang up next on the chopping block when his 8-7-6-5-2 got burned down by bracelet winner David Prociak's 7-6-4-3-2, putting him in 6th place.

Brian Hastings, a three-time WSOP bracelet winner and by far the most-accomplished player at the final table, who came into the final day at 3rd in chips, settled at 5th place after getting shot down by Prociak's 7-6-5-4-2.

Next, Prociak's 7-6-5-3-2 defeated Cody Wagner's 8-5-4-3-2, sending him to 4th place.

It was Oscar Johannson who dominated during the three-handed play. He extended his lead even more by making a nice eight against Prociak's 9-8-5-4-3, sending Prociak to settle at 3rd place. With that, Johansson got more than a 7-to-1 lead into the heads-up showdown against Tran. He furthered that advantage to 16-to-1 right before Tran started to come alive and gain momentum. Tran got all-in for about 3 huge bets and made a wheel to double up, and from then on he was on a roll.

The final hand showed Johansson 9-8-5-4-3 versus Tran 9-6-5-3-2, which makes Tran the winner in this event.

Few players in this different tournament but i think the players from final table were happy because have recovered their investment and have managed to win something extra money. For a 2-7 lowball triple draw is good and Hanh Tran is satisfied with an bracelet and a sum of money.

They got back more that their investment.
Even the one in the last place.
It had quite a few sign ups for a tournament with that buy in.
And im talking about the game being 2.7 triple draw.
If you can spare the money you are playing this one also.
I doubt there were too many players playing this format only Smile

Gigantic congratulations to Hanh Tran for topping a field of 356 entrants to win the $1,500 buy-in limit 2-7 lowball triple draw tournament. I am not fond of limit games. There is virtually zero fold equity, isn't it?
