Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Schwartz Soars Back Into the Chip Lead

• Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 200 ante

Schwartz: (x)(x) / {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Spades} /(x)
Roberts: (x)(x) / {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} (x)

Ylon Schwartz and Shaun Deeb have been exchanging the chip lead back and forth all day, but Schwartz has just put some distance between him and the field after this hand. We picked up the action on fourth street when Adam Roberts was all in showing {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for an open ended straight draw, while Schwartz revealed {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for two pair. Schwartz didn't improve, but he didn't need to, as Roberts, who was looking for high cards, got the {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and {5-}. Schwartz is the first player over 100k, as he is sitting at 115,000.
