2-7 Triple Draw

Owais Ahmed raised from the cutoff seat, and was called by John Monnette on the button and Rami Boukai in the big blind. Boukai drew two, Ahmed drew one, and Monnette drew two. Boukai led out and was called by both opponents.

On the second draw, all three players drew one, and Boukai led again. Ahmed raised, Monnette folded, and Boukai called all-in.

Boukai drew one, and Ahmed patted, showing {9-}{8-}{5-}{4-}{3-}. Boukai was drawing to a an eight with {8-}{7-}{4-}{3-}, and pulled a {2-} to make him an eighty-seven. Boukai doubled to 230,000, while Ahmed was left with his last 80,000.

A few hands later he was all in against Eric Buchman. On the final draw, Buchman was pat with {8-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{3-}, and Ahmed drew with {7-}{4-}{3-}{2-}. He was dealt a {9-}, which was no good, and he was eliminated from the tournament.

"Rami," Ahmed called to Boukai. "Take it down for the brown man."
