Event 60: $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball (No-Limit)

Notable Names


This is a small tournament packed with pros, so we recognize a few faces at every table. There are still a ton of empty seats with stacks in front, so we expect this list to grow. Again, each player is starting off with 10,000, with two rebuy lammers they can use at any time before the fourth level.

Final Open Event of 2012 WSOP About to Kick Off

John Juanda - Last Year's Champion
John Juanda - Last Year's Champion

Welcome to our coverage of Event 60: $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball (No-Limit)! This exciting lowball variant of five card draw is the final open event offered at the 2012 World Series of Poker. Last year this event drew a small but stacked field of 126 players and John Juanda was able to take home his fifth WSOP bracelet from his first place finish.

This event drew a lot of attention last year as it was widely thought that Phil Hellmuth would take down his 12th bracelet in this event. Going into heads up play with about a 3 to 1 chip lead, Hellmuth's stack was slowly whittled down by John Juanda and Hellmuth was forced to settle for his first second place finish of the 2011 WSOP.

While Hellmuth and Juada were headlining last year's final table, there were also several big names present including Nick Schulman, Hasan Habib, Joe Cassidy, Steve Sung, and the 2010 champion of this event David "Bakes" Baker. We're expecting a field stacked with professionals once again this year.

Play will kick off at 5:00 PM in the Amazon room and players will play a full eight levels this evening. Stay tuned as we present you with all of the latest updates as this stacked field of players engage in a battle of what most would call one of the purest forms of poker.
