Event #5: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball Championship

Johnson Takes it Down

• Level 1: 200-400, 0 ante

Marco Johnson was under the gun and put out a raise. He found calls from Scott Seiver, Justin Bonomo in the cutoff, and Doyle Brunson in the small blind. All four players drew two cards on the first draw.

Brunson checked and Johnson continued out. Seiver put out a raise and Bonomo flatted from the button. Brunson got out of the way and Johnson tagged along as well. Both Johnson and Seiver took one card while Bonomo picked up two new ones.

Johnson began the next betting round with a check. Seiver led out and both his opponents called. On the final draw, Johnson took one, Seiver stood pat, and Bonomo drew one. Johnson led out and Seiver called. Bonomo announced a raise and Johnson called. This caused Seiver to shrug and then sink in his seat. After a moment of thinking, Seiver opted to fling his cards away.

"I have six-high," said Bonomo, implying that he made a straight on the final draw.

"Nooooo!" yelled Seiver.

Johnson tabled {8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-} and his eighty-seven was enough to drag in the pot. Despite the win, Johnson still has under starting stack with about 22,000 in chips.
