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

Schulman Takes It Down

Daniel Negreanu opened to 2,000 only to have Nick Schulman re-raise from the cutoff to 6,500. The player on the button flat called and Negreanu called as well.

Negreanu drew one card while Schulman stood pat. The player on the button opted to take one and all three players checked post-draw.

"As Gus would say, 'that beautiful jack," said Schulman tabling {J-}{10-}{9-}{7-}{6-}. Everyone else mucked their cards and Schulman dragged in that beautiful pot.

Marchese Doubles

We got to the table to see Tom Marchese all in with {8-}{7-}{3-}{2-} in front of him. Marchese pulled one while his opponent stood pat with {8-}{7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}.

Marchese needed to pull either a four or a five to make the best low and stay alive. Marchese flipped up the {5-Hearts} and was able to stay alive and double to about 17,000.

No #13 For Phil Hellmuth

[user145752] • Tase 7: 300-600, 150 ante

It just wasn't Phil Hellmuth's day today. Hellmuth was part of the last wave of players to register, and he was never able to get above his starting stack. When we went over to his table, we saw that his seat was empty, with no chips in front. A quick scan of the room found that Hellmuth wasn't moved, meaning he's been eliminated.

Bleznick Binks The Draw Agian


A player in middle position made it 1,300 to go, and Bryn Kenney three bet to 3,500 in the cutoff. It folded around to Jared Bleznick in the small blind, and he went all in for 17,700. The original raiser got out of the way, and after about 20 seconds of thinking, Kenney tossed in the call.

Bleznick drew one card, while Kenney stood pat, saying he had a "bad nine". From what we could tell of Kenney lifting his cards up, it looked like a "ninety-seven", and Bleznick showed {7-}{6-}{3-}{2-}. For the second time in the last hour, Bleznick was at risk drawing thin, and started to stand up as he flipped over his last card. This time, it was an {8-}, which was good enough for him to secure another double up to 38,000. Meanwhile, Kenney drops down to 9,300.

Greenstein Takes One From Seiver

Barry Greenstein raised the action from the button and received a call from Scott Seiver in the big blind.

Seiver took one card while Greenstein chose to receive two new cards. Seiver bet 1,000 after the draw and Greenstein called.

"Jack-nine," said Seiver.

Greenstein showed {10-}{9-}{8-}{5-}{2-} and his ten-nine took down the pot.
