Event #18: $10,000 Seven-Card Razz Championship

Huge Hand For Hastings, Chidwick Eliminated

• Level 12: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Brian Hastings

Brian Hastings, Hoyt Corkins and Stephen Chidwick just created some fireworks on third street, which resulted in the latter being all in for his tournament life.

When Hastings announced, "five bets" it was time for Chidwick, who was caught in the middle of this raising war, to commit his final chips to the pot. Corkins called the raise and all three players went to fourth street.

Hastings: (X-X) / {A-}{6-}{K-}{4-} / (X)
Chidwick: (X-X) / {6-}{10-}{Q-}{2-} / (X)
Corkins: (X-X) / {A-}{A-}{J-}{7-}fold

Hasting bet fourth, Corkins called and on fifth he check-called a bet. On sixth street Corkins check-folded and Hastings showed {5-}{3-} for a six-five low. Chidwick tabled {3-}{10-} and he was drawing dead. Seventh street was meaningless and Chidwick left the tournament room empty handed.
