Event #13: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship

Kihara Doubles Through Rast

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 300 ante

We found Brian Rast and Naoya Kihara going to the draw with the latter all in for his tournament life of 11,000. Rast announced that he was drawing one card and Kihara stood up from the table.

"I'm pat," said Kihara, rolling over {Q-}{10-}{8-}{5-}{2-}.

Rast rolled over {9-}{8-}{3-}{2-} and was drawing live to score the elimination. He squeezed his card slowly, announcing first that it was paint.

"It's big paint," said Rast, rolling over the {K-Clubs}. Kihara's queen-low finished as the best hand and he was awarded the double up. He's now sitting around 24,000 while Rast has fallen to 41,000.
