Event #7: $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball

Baker Starting to Heat Up

David Baker opened the pot with a cutoff raise, and David Chiu (button) and Jameson Painter (big blind) came along with the calls.

Painter drew two cards and checked, and Baker fired out a bet after drawing just one. Chiu had discarded two cards, and he and Painter both called.

The second draw saw Painter take one and check again, and Baker drew one more and bet it again. Chiu was still drawing two, but he liked them enough to make the call, and Painter came along once more.

All three men took one more card on the last round, and Baker was the one betting again. This time, though, only Chiu made the call as Painter finally surrendered his miss. Chiu should have done the same; Baker turned up {7-} {6-} {5-} {3-} {2-}, and that was good enough to snag the pot.

Baker - 95,000
Chiu - 150,000
