Event #29 $2,500 10-Game Mix/6-Handed resumed on Day 4 with the 3-handed play, featuring Chris Lee, Brian Haveson and Travis Pearson battling for the golden bracelet. After eliminating Pearson and amassing a major lead, Lee did not ease the pressure on Haveson in the heads-up and enlarged his stack even more. Finally, the latter went all-in in 2-7 Triple Draw after the second change. Lee called and stood pat, Haveson changed one card.

Lee: T-9-8-4-2
Haveson: 8-7-5-2

Haveson got a K and so it was Chris Lee to win the event and the WSOP bracelet. The final table finishers were as follows:
