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.

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 cause they will probably invest some of it in other buy ins and chase even bigger money.
Posted by doubletop777: 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
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
