Pot-Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw

After accumulating a mountain of chips from eliminating Phil Hellmuth, Robert Mizrachi has followed him out the door. David "ODB" Baker recounted the action for us.

According to Baker, he raised to 800 and was accidentally raised by the small blind to 1,300. Mizrachi called in the big and Baker called as well.

The small blind took one on the first draw while Mizrachi took two and Baker took three. The small blind bet 2,200. Mizrachi called and Baker made it 11,000. The small blind folded but Mizrachi moved all in for 22,000 more. Baker tanked for about three or four minutes, then called.

Mizrachi took one on the second draw and Baker stood pat. Mizrachi took one more on the third draw and Baker stood pat again. Baker had {8-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{3-}. Mizrachi showed {7-}{4-}{3-}{2-} but drew a {2-} and was eliminated from the tournament. According to the table Mizrachi said he broke a better eighty-seven low.

Baker said if Mizrachi had stood pat he would've taken one anyways, and improved with the {2-} that Mizrachi drew, so it didn't matter either way.

That being said David "OBD" Baker is now the clear chip leader in the room with just around 80,000 chips.
