The first seven days of the 2018 WSOP is in the books. Johannes Becker from Germany won the Lowball bracelet in Event #8 $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball. Becker banked $180,455 for first place. Also, William 'Twooopair' Reymond shipped the first online event of the year with a win in Event #10 $365 WSOP.com ONLINE NL for a score worth $154,996.

It's not easy to stomach getting THISCLOSE to winning a bracelet and then walking away empty-handed. Johannes Becker got another shot at winning his first piece of WSOP bling and he didn't waste this opportunity. Becker avenged his runner-up finish in last year's Player's Championship with his first bracelet victory. The recent university grad now has two WSOP final tables with a first place and second place finish. Not too shabby, eh? Becker became the first German to win a bracelet this summer.

The legendary Billy Baxter (and OG lowball gangsta) went deep in the Triple Draw Lowball event, but his run ended in 18th place.

The first online event of the season was hosted on WSOP.com. This super-low buy-in affair attracted 2,972 players. William 'Twooopair' Reymond knocked out Shawn 'sHaDySTeeM' Stroke to win the online bracelet.

Oh, and get those pitchforks ready. 2017 WSOP POY Jesus Ferguson has cashed in three events so far... including... wait for it... the first online event of the year. Oh, the drama! It's never a dull day in Las Vegas. By the way, watch Jesus' weak-ass apology video here.

Event #8 $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball - Final Results

Ship it to Germany! Europeans notch another bracelet.

Johannes Becker outlasted a field of 321 players to win the Mixed Lowball bracelet. Becker is a "lowball specialist" which is pretty cool because it's an old school game that doesn't attract younger players, who have an affinity for action-packed games like NL hold'em or PLO.

With all these gimmick events added to the WSOP schedule, it's refreshing to see some old-school poker being played like Kansas City Lowball (that's deuce-to-seven for all you newskoolkidz.

The mixed variant in Event #8 included three specific games: ace-to-five Lowball, deuce-to-seven triple draw, and Badugi.

This lowballa field included a healthy mix of both young and older pros. Billy Baxter, OG Lowball GOAT, went deep in this event. Baxter's lowball skills are as sharp as ever, but was knocked out in 16th place.

Johannes Becker came from behind to win his first bracelet. The German picked off Scott Seiver heads-up for the victory. Seiver earned $11K for a runner-up prize. Becker banked $180K... and the bling. Becker prevented Seiver from winning his second bracelet.

Aleksandr Simma bubbled off the final table in seventh place. Luis Velador was the first player out at the final table, when he was dunzo in sixth place. George Trigeorgis bounced in fifth place. Chris Vitch would have to wait another day to win his third bracelet when the two-time bling winner busted in fourth place. Jesse Hampton had a sensational run with a third-place finish.

The top 49 places paid out in the Lowball event. Among the notables who cashed in Event #8... Mike Leah (9th), Bruce Yocky (10th), Frank Kassela (11th), Brian Hastings (1th), Mike Noori (15th), Nam Le (17th), Billy Baxter (18th), John Monnette (21st), Dennis Eichorn (25th), Steve Sung (26th), Johnny World (28th), Dan Shak (29th), Mike Wattel (31st), Pearljammer (32nd), Lars Gronning (35th), Shaun Deeb (37th), Randy Ohel (38th), CHip Jett (39th), ChinaYueqi Zhu (40th), Jameson Painter (43rd), Jordan Seigel (45th), Ismael Bojang (47th), and Jesus Ferguson (48th).
