Looking for documentation about WSOP old school events

Hi,

I'm looking for documentation about old school single draw games that were played at the WSOP.

The games I'm interested are :
- 5 card draw high
- Ace to five lowball
- Deuce to seven lowball (SD)

I'd like to find documentation about :
- The limit types (limit, no limit, ...)
- Structure sheet (starting stacks, levels, ...)
- Usage of specific rules (ex : usage of Joker, must-bet-a-seven rule, Jacks or Better, ...)

For 2-7 single draw, I already found the information :
- Always not limit
- No joker
- Sometimes limp authorized, sometimes not
- Structure sheet available on WSOP website

The only question I have is if currently, limp is authorized or not.

For Ace to Five, I already found some info :
- Played limit and no limit
- Played with and without joker - seems that Joker was only played in NL events from what I could see.

Few questions though :
- Was the "must bet a seven" rule enforced ?
- Was the check raise allowed ?
- Are some old structure sheets available ?

For 5 card draw high, I could not find a lot of info. Hence a lot of questions :
- Which kind of limits ?
- Was the Joker used ?
- Was the Jacks or Better variant used ?
- Are some structure sheets available ?

Kid.

Contact Matt Savage, he was the TD for some years until they moved to the Rio.

Currently, you cannot limp in NL 2-7.

Thanks !
Apparently this rule was also applicable in some Ace to Five games.

He's on 2p2, probably won't be hard to find him.

I could not find him. I don't know his username. I just looked for his first and last name.

I tried to reach David Sklansky. Maybe he has some memories about these events.

I've reached to Matt Savage and David but I got no answer.
For those who would like to contribute, I started to compile all the data in an Excel.
