Event #59: $2,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball

Mizrachi Cripples, Then Busts Amundsgard

tayke2 • Level 15: 2,500-5,000, 0 ante

Ola Amundsgard had been a fixture at the top of the leaderboard for most of the day, but nothing went his way after the dinner break, as he was just eliminated after back-to-back clashes with Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi. In the first hand, both Mizrachi and Amundsgard stood pat on the second and third draws, and Mizrachi bet in the dark both times. Amundsgard called, and Mizrachi showed {8-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, which bested Amundsgard's hand, dropping him to just 4,000 in the process.

On the very next hand, Mizrachi opened the action for a raise on the button, and Amundsgard tossed in the call from the big blind. He then proceeded to draw four cards, while Mizrachi drew two. Amundgard committed the last 700 of his chips, and Mizrachi called. Amundsgard then drew two, while Mizrachi drew one, and Amundsgard stood pat on the final draw. Mizrachi drew one, and saw that he was up against the {9-}{8-}{6-}{4-}{2-} of Amundsgard. Mizrachi had {9-}{7-}{3-}{2-}, and was drawing to a six, five, or four to get the win. He flipped his card up: the {6-Clubs}, which was good enough to score the knockout and end Ola Amundsgard's run in 25th.

After winning those hands, Mizrachi is all the way up to 196,000.
