John Monnette Defeats Per Hildebrand Heads-Up To Capture Third Bracelet in $10k Lowball Championship

Tags: 2017 WSOP, John Monnette, lowball, Per Hildebrand.
Posted on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 by "T".

Event #21: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship attracted some of the world's most talented poker players. The final table was played on the third day and it only took 2,5 hours to go from eight to three players: Darren Elias (USA), Per Hildebrand (Sweden) and John Monnette (USA).

 

Elias was eliminated after a short series of all-ins, ultimately losing his final chips to John Monnette who put constant pressure on his opponents throughout the final day of play.

Per Hildebrand - credit pokernews.comMonnette had a big chip lead as the final battle started and it looked like he would make it a quick one, given that Hildebrand was left with less than 500k in chips at one point. Hildebrand fought well despite being so short stacked, managing to double up and then taking down a few pots in a row before the final hand...

Per Hildebrand opened to 125,000, and John Monnette three-bet to 400,000. Hildebrand four-bet and was all in. Monnette asked for a count and then called. Monnette patted, and Hildebrand drew one. Monnette tabled 8x6x5x4x3x for an eight-six and Hildebrand revealed 8x7x6x, drawing dead.

Hildebrand, the founder of the now closed Entraction (IGT) Poker network, received $158,596 for his second place finish while Monnette earned $256,610 and his third WSOP gold bracelet.

"I just want to say, this has been my first bracelet with my wife," Monnette told WSOP.com "She's been awesome for me. All of them are special, but it was super cool with her being here. She's always been supportive of me in everything I do. She's always rooted for me, and there's been some disappointment. She deals with me being gone thirteen hours a day, and coming home angry, but luckily, I'm not so angry anymore."

Final Table Payouts (earned POY points in parentheses):
1st: John Monnette, $256,610 (136.8)
2nd: Per Hildebrand, $158,596 (116.5)
3rd: Darren Elias, $110,944 (103.5)
4th: Xavier Kyablue, $79,016 (92.4)
5th: James Chen, $57,316 (83.0)
6th: Mike Gorodinsky, $42,357 (75.1)
7th: Mike Leah, $31,903 (68.3)
8th: Paul Volpe, $24,498 (62,5)

well i do enjoy these more exotic poker forms, lowball is one of them, i remember trying my luck at it in the good old pokerstars software (that is when pokerstars still wasn't owned by amaya) it's a fun game, nice break from the usual nl holdem

The game is of course a bit unusual but I like playing in such tournaments ... the game is quite interesting and I'll probably play it again some time ...... but I like the tournaments more than 10 games ... it's interesting to play in such tournaments

Big congratulations go out to John Monnette, a well-known mixed-game specialist, for winning his third WSOP bracelet. He captured his first bracelet in the $2,500 Eight Game Mix in 2011. Congratulations also to Per Hildebrand for this runner-up finish.

Many congratulations to John Monnette on winning his third bracelet and the first prize of $256,610. This form of poker really confuses me and i take my hat off to the skill level of these guys

for me this is very big buy in,but not such a big payout!beaucse for this kind of players,10 K is nothing!but probably on this type of poker,there is always smaller number of player and special with big buy in!but congratulation to him on this success!

You are winning one first place a year in a tournament like this and the rest of the year you
are not doing a single thing.
If you are not a poker player that is Smile cause they will probably invest some of it in other
buy ins and chase even bigger money.

The game is certainly more complicated than conventional holdem ... it has its own characteristics ... but I played it sometimes at pokerstars (when the client of this poker room was still working for me normally) and I liked the game and I even took prizes in such tournaments
