This is my 7th or 8th trip to the WSOP and the first time I have played a Daily Deepstacks event. The upside is the massive field and very attractive prize money for a really deep run. Downside is clearly the very fast structure needed to finish the tournament in a day. Another downside is that it takes 30 minutes to get paid because of the queues and i.d. check process at WSOP - for a $350 profit, that's a touch frustrating.

Structure wise, the events at PH, GN and Aria are much better, but value-wise, perhaps the Daily Deepstacks at WSOP do come out on top. All depends on how you measure value I guess.

I'm sure at some stage, I'll play one again. I prefer cash games normally and they are more suited to my game, and they're also what funds my WSOP trips and tournament shot taking. And we all dream of big scores and that is the lure or tournaments, right? For buy-ins in this price range, nothing else offers bigger prize pools.

Short answer is yes, I'll probably play one again. But it is likely to always be because I fancy a change of pace on the day, and unlikely to ever be something I build a schedule around.

I wonder if many of them have pitched 2-7 triple draw before. Problem is I haven't played enough 2-7 to keep them right. wsop 2017 shared TR (watbri & donk dunc)

2-7 is fun because it's different. Folds to SB and he unhappily completes. I check from BB with AKQTT. SB then takes 4! Ok, time to take one and then bet when checked to. Easy money!

wsop 2017 shared TR (watbri & donk dunc)

Jon Turner (pearljammer) just joined our $250 2-7 TD event at Planet Hollywood. I guess coming in 10th in $10k No limit 2-7 a couple of days ago wasn't enough for him! #fortheloveofthegame

Meh, single draw ain't nothing like triple draw.

That's how you have to look at it. Tear him up!

Down to 26k at end of level 8 after peaking at 38k. Got caught snowing after 2nd draw when the villain drew 2 and then drew 2 again on 3rd. She called because she "just wanna see what you have" after catching a ninety-six. wsop 2017 shared TR (watbri & donk dunc)

Re: wsop 2017 shared TR (watbri & donk dunc)

Ok, before I get all miserable after I bust, I gotta say playing a 2-7 triple draw event has been awesome. I made it a goal last trip to learn a new game and it's been thoroughly worthwhile. I'll be firing in this game, albeit a $1500 buy-in, at the WSOP tomorrow.
