2-7 Triple Draw

The Triple Draw round has proven to be Marco Johnson's undoing. In the last couple of hands before the break, he lost the rest of his stack to finish in 20th place.

First Johnson raised from UTG, got reraised by Josh Arieh on the button, then called. Johnson would take two cards, then one, then one, while Arieh would draw one then stand pat on the final two rounds. Johnson check-called bets from Arieh on all three draws.

Arieh showed {8-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{2-}, Johnson {8-}{7-}{x-}{x-}{x-}, and Johnson was down to 52,000. Arieh, meanwhile, moved up to 2.02 million.

Soon after Johnson reraised back-and-forth with Brian Rast prior to the first draw enough to get the last of his chips in the middle. Johnson drew three at first and Rast two, then both players took one on each of the last two rounds.

Rast tabled {8-}{6-}{5-}{2-}, then turned over the {4-} he'd picked up on the end. Johnson showed {7-}{4-}{3-}{2-} and squeezed his last card -- a {3-}.

Johnson is out, while Rast continues to sport a top five stack.
