Event #21: $1,500 Seven Card Stud
Days:
123

Smith & Lessen

Mallory Smith: (XXX) / {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{a-Spades}{4-Clubs}
Zachary Shelline: (XXX) / {k-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
Lewis Lipsey: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}(X) / {j-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{j-Spades}

Mallory Smith was all in on fifth street but betting continued between Lewis Lipsey and Zachary Shelline until Shelline gave it up on seventh street, Lipsey showing jacks up. Whatever Smith was holding, it couldn't beat Lipsey when he turned over a third jack at showdown, and SMith became our first casualty of the day.

First of many.

Regan: ({4-Hearts}{K-Spades}{3-Clubs}) / {K-Hearts}{10-Spades}{3-Spades}{A-Diamonds}

Day 2, Here We Come

Good afternoon and welcome back to the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event in the Amazon Room. Yesterday we smashed last year's field for this event, and then whittled down the 408 starters to just 117 survivors - not bad for the traditionally rather lumbering pace of limit.

Nevertheless we have another long day ahead of us, as only eight players will be making it through to the final table tomorrow. In fact, only 40 of these folks are going to be getting paid at all, and we're a long way off the money yet.

Yesterday Scott Seiver emerged late in the day as dominant chip leader, and indeed there is no-one else even within spitting distance of his 63,800 stack. Nevertheless, this can be a crazy game at times and there are a clutch of big names still in who will be hoping to take a serious shot at the bracelet. Among them are Carlos Mortensen (35,600), Jean Gaspard (31,900), Cyndy Violette (21,500), Alex Kravchenko (18,400) and Sorel Mizzi (16,000).

Play is due to resume at 3pm PT, in around half an hour. Don't go anywhere.
