Tuan Le Wins 2015 WSOP $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball Championship

tuanleThe three-day $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball Championship or Event #7 in the 46th WSOP schedule was completed with Los Angeles-based poker pro Tuan Le topping a field of some of the best high-stakes players in the world.

The event attracted a total of 109 entries who created a prize pool of $1,024,600. Of all the players, who took part in the event, only the top 12 were to be paid, with the payouts starting from $22,110. As for the champion, he received the amount of $322,756. It is interesting to note that last year, Le won the same event to capture his first-ever WSOP bracelet.

The seven-handed final table included three other bracelet holders – Phil Galfond, Calvin Anderson, and Rep Porter. However, Max Casal from California, whom Le faced in a heads-up play, turned out to be his toughest opponent. Casal almost evened at a certain point, after he managed to fight back a major chip deficit. Yet, he had to content himself with the runner-up finish, as Le did not let go of his lead.

On the third and last day of the event, it took about 6 hours for the winner to be determined. On the final hand in play, Casal drew one and Le drew three. The second draw came with Casel drawing one once again and Le drawing two. On the last draw, Casal drew one and tabled [9x][7x][5x][3x][3x]. Le, in turn, tabled [Jx][8x][6x][5x][2x].

Casal was paid the amount of $199,438 for his second-place finish. It could be said that Le was familiar with his opponent’s style, as they frequently play together at the high-stakes section of Commerce Casino in Los Angeles.

Austrian player Ismael Bojang finished 3rd in the event to pocket $130,851. Last year, he cashed in 13 WSOP events, more than any other player has ever done within the span of one year. Phil Galfond took 4th place for $98,939. Australian James Obst finished 5th and added the amount of $63,863 to his poker bankroll.

Rounding up the official final table, poker pro Rep Porter from Michigan took 7th place to receive a total of $35,389 for his efforts. Last year, the player won a WSOP bracelet for topping the field of a Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split event.
