We are around about one third of the way through the 2012 World Series of Poker already. Today's 5:00pm start-time event is the $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball.
This is one of the more niche events and last year it attracted 309 entrants. Lenny Martin overcame Justin Bonomo heads-up to claim the $189,818 top prize. We're expecting a similar number this year and as it's a limit event we expect some of the players to be "double-dipping" with the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event that started earlier in the day. Then of course there's those like Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey who are at the final table of the $2,500 Seven Card Razz and $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em events respectively.
The dealers are being readied and reminded of the rules of this game in preparation. Remember dealers, an ace always plays high in this game!
