Doug Polk - 11th Place

Richard Ashby completed from the small blind, Doug Polk raised out of the big blind, Ashby reraised and Polk called all in.

Polk: {k-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Ashby: {j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

"I have two cards that can make a low," Polk said, revealing his hand.

The {7-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop gave him the best low draw because Ashby paired his seven, and the {4-Diamonds} on the turn completed his low. Polk could scoop the pot with a five on the river for a full house, but disaster struck as the {a-Spades} completed the board, giving Ashby a superior low to go with his sevens and deuces.

Polk wished the players at the table good luck, then exited the tournament area looking to get paid.
