In the last hand at the previous level, John Hennigan raised first to act and was called by Billy Baxter before Mike Leah three-bet in the cutoff. Action folded back to Hennigan and Baxter, who each called and drew one while Leah stayed pat. Leah kept the lead and draws repeated before action got even heavier.

After the second draw, Leah's bet was called by Hennigan before Baxter raised. Leah called and Hennigan called. Hennigan was the only one to draw and he checked the end. Baxter bet and Leah called. Hennigan came out with a raise. Baxter called.

"I guess I'm going to regret slowplaying this hand," Leah said with a sigh. "Should have three-bet after the second draw."

He called.

"Eight-four?" Hennigan asked hopefully.

"Nope," Leah said, spreading {7-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. "OK, I'm glad I slowplayed. I was having bad thoughts, John. I just lost with a pat six."

"Which seven-six?" he said and when it became clear that it was the {7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, Simma added: "Seven-six-four is good."

2-7 Triple Draw

Mike Leah drew two, Dan Shak drew one and Paul Volpe drew two with the latter all in and a small side pot between Leah and Shak. Everyone drew one following that on the final pull. The end went check-check.

"You can take the side pot," Leah declared, showing {8-}{8-}{7-}{6-}{3-} and pushing some chips to Shak.

Shak rolled over a pretty terrible showdown of his own with {8-}{7-}{4-}{3-}{a-}. However, it was good as Volpe turned over {2-}{3-}{4-}{5-}{4-} for a pair and wished everyone good luck.
