A lot was at stake for Mr. Daniel Negreanu on the final table of the Event #13: No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball, given that he could win his 7th gold bracelet but also because he and Phil Ivey have accepted large bets on whether they will win a bracelet this summer. And to make things extra exciting, Negreanu made it to heads-up against Paul Volpe after a few hours of play...

I do like Daniel Negreanu and he is a good personality to have in poker so I would have liked to have seen him win,I'm sure he will win one this year though. It looks like it was extremely tough table.According to Hendon Mob stats the total live winnings for the top 7 was around $44million.Negreanu and Mercier have around $32m of the total but obviously not an easy task to win. Paul Volpe may not have won a bracelet before but he has had some big wins in EPTs and WPTs. I have to say I have no idea how to play No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball and I just looked at the rules of the game and it looks very confusing to a regular NL Texas hold 'em player.I can just about manage Omaha so I give a lot of respect for those players that can win in all these types of poker.
