Event #9: $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball

Oh Dear, Matt Perrins, Oh Dear

• Level 9: 300-600, 150 ante

Matt Perrins is gradually being blinded away as he hasn't arrived at the Rio yet.

"He's such a clown," said Stuart Rutter, "he left his house at 2.50pm and it's a 35 minute taxi ride from here..."

No He Khan't

• Level 9: 300-600, 150 ante

Shawn Sheikhan doubled up through Thomas Fuller, the lattr drew one to a {10-}{9-}{6-}{2-} and managed to pick up an {8-} but Sheikhan's {10-}{7-}{5-}{2-} picked up an {6-} to make a better ten-low. It was all in vain however as Sheikhan busted a mere few hands later.

• Level 9: 300-600, 150 ante

Robert Woodcock is another early exit, he committed himself preflop against Josh Brikis and stood pat after the latter draw one card to an {8-}{6-}{3-}{2-}. Woodcock turned over {J-}{9-}{7-}{6-}{4-} but Brikis picked up a {10-} to eliminate the British player.

First Casualty of Day 2

• Level 9: 300-600, 150 ante

We missed the action, but Matt Affleck's last 8,000 chips or so were shipped over to Bernard Lee. All we saw was that Affleck's {A-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-} didn't hold up and he is gone from the tournament. In the mean time, Lee is up to around 33,000.

Welcome to Day 2 of the $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball

We're back in the Amazon room with 73 players remaining in a very stacked field which is led by George Lind who sits with 52,200 but there is a multitude of bracelet winners still in including Jason Mercier Greg Mueller (there is your love!) Rami Boukai and Chris Bjorin.

28 players get paid but obviously the plan will be to play down to the final tonight, something we believe will definitely happen before ten levels are through.

Play starts at 3pm
