10 High Good
Seat 6 raises to $1,250 from under-the-gun, Seat 5 is all-in for his last $2,250 and Seat 6 calls. Seat 5 passes on the draw and seat 6 draws two cards. Seat 5 turns over 7-6-4-3-10 and seat 6 folds.

Rule Clarifications
Certain players are having a hard time at this year's 2-7 event. One player in particular assumed that the best low possible included the Ace.

So, a player with 7-6-5-4-3 would not be happy with his hand.

Players are having a hard time? Plural? D'oh!
