With a total of 125 runners, the $10K 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball Championship was packed with the best players of the world. After two days of playing poker, only nine players were left, with Chris Klodnicki being the chipleader. In the end, it was old school pro John Hennigan who turned out the strongest, taking home his fourth bracelet and $320,103.
After the eliminations of Russian Andrey Zhigalov ($28,507) and American Scott Abrams ($39,179) the remaining seven players sat down at the unofficial final table. These were the chipstacks at the beginning of the final seven:
Brant Hale could only enjoy the final table for a couple of minutes, he finished in seventh for $39,179 after losing 95% of his chips against Michael Gathy, who had made an 8-7-low.
Abe Mosseri wasn't going to win his second bracelet, he lost his last chips against JC Tran. Abe collected $53,951 for his sixth place finish.
After this it was Zhukov who was sent to the rail, finishing in fifth place for $74,439, giving his chips to Gathy. Former chipleader Klodnicki was next to leave the table, Hennigan busted him in fourth place, just before he ended the dream of JC Tran as well, who came in third.
Hennigan started the heads-up against Belgian poker pro Gathy with a big chip advantage. During the match, Gathy managed to come back and even held a small chiplead for a moment. Hennigan, however, made a good call with a 9-8-low against the pair of fives of Gathy, and the match was almost over, leaving Gathy cripled. He delivered his last chips to Hennigan with 7x 6x 4x 2x with one draw remaining against Hennigan's Jx 6x 4x 3x 2x, where he didn't hit the desired card in the last draw.
These were the results of the final six:
