Event #49: $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball (Limit)

Bursted Bubble

Thomas Hamlett has been super low stacked for quite some time, with only 200 chips left he moved them all in under the gun. The player in the small blind made the call, and Greg Raymer checked in the big blind. Hamlet drew one, the small blind took two, and Raymer took four.

Both other non all in players checked. All players then took one card. It was here that Raymer bet and the small blind folded. Both Raymer and Hamlett then stood pat and flipped their cards. Both players showed {8-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-} and they chopped up the pot.

The very next hand Hamlett was the big blind and forced to be all in. Galen Hall raised and managed to get heads up with the all in Hamlett where both players took two cards to start it out. On the second draw they both took two again. The third draw allowed them both to take one card.

Hall Flipped first and showed {7-}{6-}{5-}{4-} he then squeezed out an {8-} for a straight. Hamlett then showed {8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-} for an eight low and a double up.

Hamlett was now the small blind and all in still with less than 1,000 in chips. Raymer raised and found a caller in Jason Mercier. Hamlett took two cards as did Mercier, and Raymer opted to take just one. Mercier then check-called a bet from Raymer. Again Hamlett took two cards as did Mercier, Raymer again only took one.

This time Mercier check-folded when Raymer put out a bet. Raymer showed {8-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, and Hamlett announced he couldn't beat that. After a great effort of trying to stay alive Hamlett was eliminated. All players at the table shook hands and all players now set gears on making the final table.
