Congratulations to Phil Galfond, Winner of Event #29: No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship ($224,383)!
Phil Galfond raises to 50,000 from the button and Nick Schulman moves all in from the big blind for a total of 649,000. Galfond asks for an exact count, and after a few moments of deliberation, Galfond makes the call.
Schulman now takes his turn to enter the tank as he contemplates whether to stand pat or how many to draw. After about a minute, Schulman discards one and Galfond does the same.
As a now standing Schulman bends down to squeeze his card, he asks Galfond, "do you wanna squeeze first?"
Galfond responds by adding, "yeah I'll just flip it over!"
Galfond reaches for his draw card and reveals the to render Schulman drawing dead.
Schulman flips over his and heads over to Galfond to give him a congratulatory handshake while simultaneously heading to the rail in 2nd place for a $138,665 - his first runner-up finish in this event after winning it in 2012 and 2009 as well as a 5th in 2011.
