Event 30: $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball

Number 2 vs Number 2

Leo Margets

Chopped pots are a rare sight in this tournament, but we just caught a massive one between Leo Margets and Konstantin Puchkov.

Puchkov started off under the gun and raised to 2,100, and Margets opted to three-bet from the cutoff to 5,100. Both blinds folded and after some tanking the Russian decided to call.

Puchkov drew one card, Margets stood pat.

The action was on Puchkov who announced a 10,000 chip bet, and quickly Margets put her opponent all in. "I call," Puchkov said in a hurry after we got to showdown.

Margets turned over {7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, and one of the players at the table pointed out, "That's what we call a number two".

Puchkov took a good look at Margets cards, before finally turning over his {7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}.

"And that's also a number two," the same player said as the pot was chopped.

"I folded a number three, Devo," Erick Lindgren shouted at Bryan Devonshire who laughed as he watched what was going on that table. "I could see it in their eyes" he added.

Margets still has a big stack while Puchkov is also looking healthy as we approach the money bubble.
