Event #16: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball

Steury Hits Draw to Chop and Stay Alive

• Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Tom Franklin won a good sized pot against David Bell with a {3-}{4-}{5-}{7-}{8-} and on the next hand would get Aaron Steury all in drawing to a five or six as Franklin had {2-}{3-}{4-}{6-}{7-} and Steury was drawing one with {2-}{3-}{4-}{7-}. He squeezed his card and said proudly "chop" as he turned over a {6-}. He joked afterwards about how he should have tripled up but given the circumstances is happy to still be alive.
