Event #8: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix

Wolasnky's Fours Are Good

Josh_Cahlik • Level 17

2-7 Triple Draw

Marco Johnson opened with a raise that was quickly three-bet by Steven Wolansky from the next seat over. The blinds released and Johnson called.

Johnson drew two and Wolansky opted to draw three. Both players checked and on the second draw Johnson took two once more and Wolansky drew two.

Johnson checked and Wolansky bet. Johnson called and drew one on the final draw. Wolansky also took one.

Johnson cut out a bet and Wolansky went into the tank, all the while shuffling enough chips to call. In the end, he opted to do so.

Johnson fanned {7-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{2-} for a pair of sevens.

"Pair of sevens?" asked Wolansky. "Pair of fours!"

Wolansky fanned {4-}{4-}{7-}{3-}{2-} triumphantly and was able to take down the pot. He's now sitting on 210,000 while Johnson has fallen to 245,000.

On the other side of the room, Andrey Zaichenko was eliminated in unknown action during a hand of Stud Eight-or-better
