California's John Monnette finished off a loaded final table to win his third career World Series of Poker gold bracelet in the 2017 WSOP's Event #22, $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship. Monnette's win was worth $256,610. The win pushed Monnette's lifetime WSOP earnings to more than $2.1 million.

Philadelphia native and online-poker veteran Darren Elias claimed third. Elias's $110,944 payday is his largest career WSOP cash to date.
