Each time you join a Seven Deuce table, you pay into the side pot. You do not have to feed the pot again until someone wins with a 7-2. If you leave a table, you'll get your side pot money back.
Winning the pot
To win the side pot, just take down a pot with 7-2 at any point in a hand. You'll have to show everyone that you were holding 7-2, but it'll definitely be worth it.
Each day, we'll keep track of the number of hands won with 7-2 as hole cards in two separate stake levels:
* • Low Stakes ($0.10/$0.25 to $1/$2)
* • High Stakes ($2/$4 and above)
The top 10 players with the greatest number of winning 7-2 hands in each stake level will earn a piece of $27,500. Find out more about [old link~tb].

I played at a $10NL FR table today to see what it was like.
When I sat at the $.05/$.10 table they immediately took $.15 from me, which created a $1.35 side pot. If I leave the table before the side pot is one I get my $.15 back. If someone wins the 7/2 side pot I automatically refill it with another $.15.
The game was wild! The dude on my left was 86/57. Dude across from me was 77/32. (I doubled up through each of them). I think I saw a grand total of *one* hand being won pre-flop, and it was a shover.
Winning with 7/2 would be really hard.
Here are some hands I thought were interesting:
