Event #44: $2,500 Seven Card Razz

Closing the Gap

Steven Su had the bring-in with a {Q-}, and he defended it to a completion from Rep Porter's {8-}. It's only the second time in the heads-up match we've made it past third street.

Su: (X)(X) / {q-}{j-}{7-}{q-} / (X)
Porter: (X)(X) / {8-}{k-}{k-}{a-} / (X)

Su check-called on fourth street, and he bet his lead on fifth. Porter called with his open pair, and Su picked up one of those on sixth. Porter tried to bet out of turn, then apologized when Su corrected him. Su checked, though, and he called Porter's bet. On seventh street, Porter liked what he saw enough to bet it one last time. Su snap-called.

Porter announced his, "Nine," and he tabled {9-}{5-}{4-} to prove it. Su couldn't beat it, mucking his cards to draw this match closer to square.
