Event #19: $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship

Johnson Sliding


Greg Mueller raised to 625 and then Johnny Chan reraised to 3,150. Marco Johnson was in the small blind and made the call. Mueller then re-reraised all in and had both Chan and Johnson covered. Chan folded and left himself with 16,000 chips. Johnson went into the tank with about 16,500 chips behind. He tanked for a couple minutes and then mucked his hand, allowing Mueller to scoop in the chips.

Moments later, Johnson got involved again in a pot that cost him some chips. Jason Mercier raised to 750 and Eli Elezra called. Johnson reraised to 3,000 and then Mercier and Elezra called. Mercier then stood pat, Elezra drew one and Johnson stood pat. After the draw, all three players checked.

Elezra showed a {9-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-} and both his opponents mucked their hands. Mercier dropped back to 31,000 while Elezra moved up to 47,500. Johnson slipped down to about 13,000.
