Event #21: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Pietsch, Like Cream, Rises

Christine Pietsch

Dan Heimiller: {a-}{a-}{5-} / {3-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Christine Pietsch: (XXX) / {q-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Dan Heimiller was the bring in three hands in a row. The first two times he folded to completion; the third time (Christine Pietsch completed) he called.

Pietsch check-called on fourth street before betting out and then calling Heimiller's raise on fifth. Pietsch reverted to check-calling on sixth street, but on seventh she check-raised.

"Wow," said Heimiller.

"You think I was bluffing?" laughed Pietsch.

"Possible bluff," Heimiller continued. He waved his down cards - {A-}{a-}{5-} for two pair - in the air for a while, and then he folded.

Pietsch told him she rivered a straight as she raked in her new 220,000 stack.

"Well, I can't win them all," said the philosophical Heimiller. "I thought I was going to win them all..."
