Event 22: $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball

The Break That Almost Wasn't

Randy Ohel and Benjamin Lazer

Randy Ohel had the button, and raised. Benjamin Lazer three-bet, Ohel four-bet, and Lazer called. Both players drew one card, then checked. Both players drew one card again, and Lazer check-called a bet. On the final draw, Lazer took one card, and Ohel stood pat. Lazer check-folded, leaving himself with just 225,000 chips.

The clock read 00:43, and the tournament director asked how long the players wanted to break for.

"As long as possible," Lazer joked. He then sweated his cards and raised. "We might not need it though."

Ohel three-bet, Lazer four-bet, and Ohel called. Ohel drew one card, and Lazer two. Ohel led out, and Lazer raised all in for an extra 25,000-chip. Ohel called. Both players drew one card, and then Ohel drew one more. Lazer stood pat.

"What do I have to beat?" Ohel asked.

Lazer fanned {7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}.

"I'm drawing dead," Ohel said, mucking {8-}{7-}{x-}{x-} face up.

The players are now on a 20-minute break.
