Event #44: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship

Martin Doubles Through Seiken

tRaMSt0p • Level 13: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Jesse Martin raised to 8,000 from middle position leaving himself just a single 500-denomination chip to cap his cards.

The action folded to Nicholas Seiken in the big blind, and with a pained look, he raised to 8,500. Martin called all-in, and we were off to see who could draw better.

Seiken took four, and Martin drew two. On the second draw, both players improved and they each drew one. On the final draw, both players drew one again.

Seiken: {10-}{8-}{7-}{2-}
Martin: {8-}{5-}{4-}{2-}

Seiken revealed his final card to be the {7-} giving him a pair, and Martin would need to fade only an eight to stay alive.

He squeezed the {10-}, and consequently doubled through to 19,000 in chips.
