Jason Mercier

Welcome to PokerNews' Day 3 coverage of Event #49, the $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball. After 18 levels of play, only 13 remain from a starting field of 310. To say that the remaining field is stacked would be an understatement. On top of the counts with the 358,500 is Jason Mercier. With a bracelet already won this summer, Mercier will be looking to add another and continue his rise among poker's elite.

It won't be an easy task, though, as a talented and skilled bunch are hot on his heels. Bracelet winners Eli Elezra and Scott Seiver are also above the 300,000 mark, while Shawn Buchanan, Jon Turner, Galen Hall, David Back, and Justin Bonomo also are still in contention.

Play kicks off at 3:00 PM PT, about 40 minutes from now, so be sure to keep it here at PokerNews throughout the day for all of the exciting action as it takes place.
