2-7 Triple Draw

Jerry Wong raised from the cutoff and Alex Epstein called from the big. The latter drew two and the former three.

Epstein then bet, Wong called, and on the second draw it went one-two.

Epstein bet 100,000 and then called off his last 10,000 after Wong raised. Both players then indicated they'd be drawing one before tabling their hands.

Alex Epstein: {8-}{7-}{5-}{4-}
Jerry Wong: {9-}{5-}{6-}{2-}

Wong showed an {a-} giving Epstein plenty of outs, but as he squeezed he said it was a three-sider, meaning it was either a six, seven, or eight, all cards that would lose him the hand.

"Automatically dead," he said after showing an {8-} to make a losing pair.
