Patrick Moulder is the latest player to win a World Series of Poker bracelet. The Las Vegas resident emerged victorious in the 2024 WSOP $2,500 mixed triple draw lowball event, securing the top prize of $177,045 and a coveted bracelet.

This win marks Moulder’s largest live tournament score to date. Earlier in this year’s series, he also recorded his second and third-largest paydays: $41,281 for finishing eighth in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. championship event and $35,838 for placing ninth in the $10,000 Omaha eight-or-better championship. With these successes, Moulder’s career tournament earnings now exceed $319,000.

 

The mixed triple draw lowball event featured a rotation of deuce-to-seven triple draw lowball, ace-to-five triple draw lowball, and badugi. It attracted 371 entries, with the top 56 finishers sharing a prize pool of $825,475.

Moulder began the final day with the chip lead and maintained it heading into the final table, although the stack sizes were close and several players were in strong contention. Shaun Deeb entered the final table as the shortest stack but quickly tripled up to stay in the game. After several double-ups, Anthony Hu became the first final table casualty, his stack decimated by Benny Chan in a hand of 2-7 triple draw.

After Hu’s elimination, Chan took a strong lead, surpassing Moulder. However, Moulder regained ground by making a wheel to knock out Deeb in sixth place. Matthew Smith was the next to go, finishing in fifth.

Chad Eveslage had a roller coaster of a final table, starting mid-pack, climbing near the top, then being whittled down after losing two badugi hands to Yuebin Guo. Despite several double-ups, Eveslage eventually exited in fourth place when Moulder took the last of his chips in a four-bet ace-to-five triple draw hand.
