Event #16: $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship (No-Limit)


123md • Level 1: 50-100, 25 ante

There was a bit of commotion over at Table 130, so we went to see what it was all about.

After a pot between Alessio Isaia and Daniel Alaei took place, Alaei declared a {K-} low while Isaia declared a {J-} low. Alaei mucked while Isaia showed his hand, but didnt realize he was paired up with {J-}{10-}{8-}{3-}{3-}.

A floor was called over and ruled that since Alaei's hand was already mucked, he could not be declared the winner. The only other two players at the table, Justin Bonomo and Mike Matusow, said that the pot should simply be awarded to Alaei, as did Isaia. Matusow's main point was that Isaia would have never stood pat predraw had he known he was paired. A second floor came by to hear the situation and because all players at the table agreed, the pot was in fact awarded to Alaei.
