Pot-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

Christopher Claassen raised to 120,000 in the small blind and was called by Ben Diebold. They headed to the first draw on which Claassen took two and Diebold took one. Claassen checked, Diebold bet the pot and then instantly called the all-in of Claassen for around 700,000.

Claassen discarded one card and was up against a pat, then patted the final draw and Diebold patted back.

Claassen announced a nine and showed the {9-}{5-}{4-}{3-}{2-} but Diebold instantly replied with a "not good" before flipping over the {8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}.

Just after the hand, Joey Couden showed up at the rail and Diebold had asked him how his Badeucey game was because that's what Mike Gorodinsky picked. Couden replied with a "good" and Diebold nodded.

In the meanwhile, Claassen headed to the payout desk to collect $98,738 for his fourth place finish.
