WSOP Fantasy -Event #14: $1,500 2-7 Draw Lowball

OOPS!! I thought the only event beginning Saturday was the $1k donkament. But the $1500 2-7 Lowball being played no limit started last night at 5PM Las Vegas time. Since I failed to select new horses the players I picked for the $1k carried over. Therefore, I have a ton of players who have probably never played a hand of deuce-to-seven as my picks;

Position Player
A Player James Akenhead
A Player Shannon Shorr
A Player Annette Obrestad is playing
A Player Lex Veldhuis is playing
A Player Vitaly Lunkin
B Player Praz Bansi
B Player Jeff Madsen
B Player Nikolay Evdakov
B Player Joe Cada
B Player Sorel Mizzi
C Player Annand (Victor) Ramdin
C Player Erica Schoenberg
C Player Tim "Tmay420" West
C Player Erick Lindgren is playing and made it to Day 2 and busted before the money
C Player Adam Levy

For some reason, I find all the No-limit hold-em low-buy events mind-numbing to follow this year. Seems like the name players chip up early, bust-out and move on to the next tourney. Not sure if this is because they just don't know when to change gears once they hit the 4th or 5th level, or get bored and its only $1-1.5k or if its the structure that causes them to play that way. Seems like they are all played turbo. I've said it before and will say it again. I'd rather play the Venetian Deep Stack series then a WSOP donkament. I'm beginning to think the low-buyin events cheapen the WSOP.
