Event #7: $1,500 Seven-Card Razz

Bach Getting Short

[user153638] • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante

Last year David Bach navigated a field of 301 players to finish runner-up in this tournament, which means the only way he can top that performance is by winning this event. That's going to be tough though as he is currently the short stack.

In a recent hand, Bach brought it in with a {7-} and then called when Hellmuth completed with an {A-}. Hellmuth then checked after receiving a {7-} on fourth but raised when Bach, who had received a {4-}, bet. Bach made the call and then bet fifth street. Hellmuth just called and then bet on sixth when he retook the lead. Bach called that bet and one on seventh.

Bach: (x-x) / {7-}{4-}{10-}{k-} / {x-}
Hellmuth: {8-}{6-} / {a-}{7-}{k-}{3-} / {x-}

Hellmuth held an 8-7-6-3-A low and it was good.
