We Need to see More than the Threes...

• Level 1: 50-100, 25 ante

After a raise and a call, David Benyamine and Anton Allemann each drew one card and then both players opted to check.

Benyamine flipped over his cards but only revealed the {3-}{3-}. Allemann then revealed HIS {3-}{3-}. Benyamine revealed his last three cards as being the {9-}{7-}{5-} but found that his hand was bested by Allemann's {9-}{6-}{4-}.

Maybe next time they'll just reveal all the cards at once and save a little time.

Floor!

[user139916] • Level 1: 50-100, 25 ante

There was a bit of commotion over at Table 130, so we went to see what it was all about.

After a pot between Alessio Isaia and Daniel Alaei took place, Alaei declared a {K-} low while Isaia declared a {J-} low. Alaei mucked while Isaia showed his hand, but didnt realize he was paired up with {J-}{10-}{8-}{3-}{3-}.

A floor was called over and ruled that since Alaei's hand was already mucked, he could not be declared the winner. The only other two players at the table, Justin Bonomo and Mike Matusow, said that the pot should simply be awarded to Alaei, as did Isaia. Matusow's main point was that Isaia would have never stood pat predraw had he known he was paired. A second floor came by to hear the situation and because all players at the table agreed, the pot was in fact awarded to Alaei.

Big Names in a Small Field

Although this field is likely to be one of the smallest of all the bracelet events this summer, there is no lack of talent here! These are the players we've already spotted and we imagine more will be coming in over the next few levels.

Welcome to PokerNews' Day 10 coverage of 2011 World Series of Poker!

Today marks the start of Event #16, the $10,000 No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven Draw Lowball Championship. This event usually has the smallest number of entrants of any WSOP event and you know what that means...a pro-heavy field that is eager for the coveted WSOP gold bracelet. Last year, David "Bakes" Baker topped an elite field of 101 to capture his first WSOP bracelet and we expect he'll be back to defend his title.

He earned $294,314 for his victory and defeated a final table that included Eric Cloutier, George Danzer, John Juanda, Doug Booth, Erik Seidel and Eric Kesselman. Daniel Negreanu also made a deep run, bubbling the final table of seven.

Play begins at 5 p.m. local time, a bit less than two hours from now, so be sure to keep it here for of the exciting action as it unfolds!
