Event #21: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Ashby Takes Some Back

Richard Ashby had just relinquished some of his chips to Christine Pietsch, but he recently took back a commanding lead.

Pietsch: (XXX) / {6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Ashby: {10-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{8-Clubs} / {3-Spades}{10-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

Both players came in for 10,000 on third street and checked it down to sixth street when Ashby made a bet, getting called by Pietsch. They checked again on seventh street and ashby's tens were good.

Pots like these might not seem large, but every bet takes a significant chunk out of Pietsch's stack.
