Event #38: $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Championship

Déjà Scoop

[user101598] • Level 1: 400-800, 100 ante
Calvin Anderson

Calvin Anderson: {x-}{x-} / {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{j-Hearts} / {x-}
Chris George: {x-}{x-} / {k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs} / {x-}

Anderson check-called a bet on fourth street, then check-called another on fifth. Anderson opted to lead out on sixth and seventh, George raised on seventh, and Anderson called, showing {5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds} for a six-five low.

George turned over {k-}{k-} for trips, and the two chopped the pot.

Anderson of course won the $1,500 buy-in variant of this game a few days ago, and Melissa Burr, a fellow finalist, is at his table. As he was taking in his half of the pot, the player he defeated in heads-up play, Joe Tehan, sat down right next to him.

"What," Burr asked, incredulously. "How can this happen?"

The three players shared a big laugh, and we will see if any or all of them can make a repeat run at a seven-card stud hi-low final table.
