No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball w/ReBuys (Event 18)

June 11, 2008

A stacked final table in event 18 is going on today.  Erick Lindgren, making his second final table appearance (as well as a few other deep runs) is having an impressive WSOP 08, and enters as the chip leader.  Barry Greenstein is not far behind in second place.  Matusow, Lisandro, Benyamine, Tony G, and Tom Schneider round out the table.

At least two of these players have PROP bets with Ivey, Lindgren and Greenstein.  Ivey has taken a bunch of bets with people ranging from 1.8 to 1 to 2.2 to 1 that he will get a bracelet this year, and he has also taken several bracelet bets around 200k each with people on whomever wins the most bracelets.  So this final table could be an expensive one for him.  Although, after watching him roll dice and go on a couple million swing, he should be able to stomach it.

I’m rooting for E-dog, as he’s already got one bracelet, but it’d be cool to see him have a monster year.

This is great.  Everytime Barry Greenstein busts from a tourney, he gives a signed copy of his book ‘Ace on the River’ to whomever busts him.

Take a look at this photo, from Cardplayer, of one such autographed copy:
