Let’s not all sit here and pretend that we’re giant fans of 2-7 No-Limit Draw Lowball. We’re not. Hell, most of us don’t even know how to play it, we’d be asking the guy on our left if he “has any 4’s.”
That’s why these poker pros are the best in the world. They play all the games, they crush all the buy-ins.
Today, in the $10K No-Limit 207 Draw Lowball Championship, the final 7 entries of the 87 that entered are all, pretty much, marquee names in the game of poker.
Chipleader Paul Volpe has 14 WSOP cashes in his career but has yet to wrap a bracelet around his wrist. Boat owner Jason Mercier, Brian Rast and John Monnette all already have two bracelet each and will be looking to join Vanessa Selbst and Brock Parker as players who lay claim their third in 2014.
Perhaps all the attention though will be on “Kid Poker” himself. Daniel Negreanu, who has a much publicized bracelet bet (with Phil Ivey as his partner) enters the final table 3rd in chips with a lot more on the line than the $253,524 first place prize. Daniel is shooting to take down his 7th lifetime bracelet today.
Headed into the final table as the short stack is Abe Mosseri who is just happy to be here.
No seriously, Abe is under indictment and out on bail in the massive illegal gambling case in New York and had to be granted permission by a federal judge to just be in Las Vegas – much less at a Final Table.
So, yea, he’s just happy to be here.
All these sickos get back together at 2pm PST to fight over the hardware. Watch it on the WSOP Livestream.
