Nikzad Keeps Keepin' On

• Taso 21

2-7 Triple Draw

Hooman Nikzad raised from the cutoff seat, and Eric Buchman called to go heads-up the rest of the way.

Both players took two cards on the first draw, and Buchman bet it. Nikzad raised, Buchman reraised, and Nikzad dropped his last 500 chips into the pot to put himself all in. Both players took one card apiece on the second and third drawing rounds.

Buchman showed {8-}{6-}{5-}{3-} and he pulled another {5-} to pair. Nikzad just had to avoid a bad pair with his {9-}{6-}{3-}{2-}, and the {j-} he pulled secured his double. He's back in the game once again with about 75,000 while Buchman drops a bit to 355,000 or so.
