Event #16: $10,000 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship (No-Limit)

Hellmuth Takes First Big Pot of Heads Up

• Nivel 23: 12,000-24,000, 6,000 ante

From the button John Juanda made it 62,000 to go and Phil Hellmuth made the call. Each player drew one cards and Hellmuth checked.

Juanda slowly counted out stacks of chips before deciding that the correct amount to bet would be 172,000. Hellmuth snap called and the players both turned up ten low's.

Juanda: {10-}{8-}{6-}{3-}{2-}
Hellmuth: {10-}{7-}{5-}{4-}{2-}

Hellmuth's ten-seven was enough to scoop the pot. This brings Hellmuth's stack to about 3,000,000 versus Juanda's roughly 850,000 in chips.
