The biggest Deuce-to-Seven Lowball poker tournament in history was won by Peter Gelencser.  He won poker’s most coveted prize -- the WSOP gold bracelet.  

Gelencser is a professional poker player and former student from Budapest, Hungary.  He collected a first-place payout totaling $180,730.  Gelencser becomes the second WSOP gold bracelet winner from Hungary, following Peter Traply's win last year in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout,

Deuce-to-Seven Lowball is an odd game.  The goal in Lowball is to get bad cards and make bad hands.  Aces, kings, queens, and pairs are the Lowball player’s worst nightmare.  

Triple Draw Lowball was first introduced at the WSOP in 2002.  John Juanda won the first Triple Draw tournament.  In 2003, Men 'the Master' Nguyen won the event.  The game took a three-year hiatus from 2004-2006 and returned in 2007, with a $1,000 buy-in event.  Hence, this is only the sixth Triple-Draw Lowball event ever played at the WSOP.

This game is rarely played anywhere except at the very highest levels.  It’s rarely spread inside public cardrooms -- either as cash games or tournaments.  In fact, the WSOP is one of the few places where this poker variant is offered.

Among those who cashed were former WSOP gold bracelet winners Pat Poels, Ted Forrest, Eli Elezra, Greg Mueller, Hoyt Corkins, and David Singer.

The runner up was Raphael Zimmerman, from Missoula, MT.
