2012 World Series of Poker

Event 30: $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball
Days: 1

Fun Times!

Level 3 : 50-75, 25 ante

We just saw a hand we would classify as 'fun'. A player raised to 150 after which Donnie Peters called, and the action was folded to the big blind who moved all in for 1,400.

The initial raiser tanked for a bit before and called, after which Peters tossed his cards into the muck. The all in player stood pat, and his opponent had a tough decision. After around 30 seconds he decided to take one card and his opponent said the following.

"I need you to pair up," as he showed his {A-}{K-}{Q-}{8-}{5-}.

His opponent hit an ace, but still had by far the best hand.

"Alright guys, good luck," the all in player said as he left the tournament area.

"I guess he didn't like to play this," Liv Boeree said as the players at the table were stunned by the hand they just witnessed.

Peters informed us afterwards that the player who won the hand was telling about how he had never played this game before. The player was reading up on 2-7 Triple Draw, only to figure out this game is No Limit, and has only one draw.

We are in for a fun one here today guys!
