Event 10: $5,000 Seven Card Stud

Riskky Business

John D'Agostino was getting pretty short on chips until this pot with Scott "BigRiskky" Clements. We picked up the action as Cyndy Violette was involved in their three-way pot.

Clements: (x-x) / {7-Spades} {6-Hearts} {3-Spades} {10-Clubs} / (x)
Violette: (x-x) / {5-Hearts} {A-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {10-Spades} / (x)
D'Agostino: (x-x) / {Q-Clubs} {2-Spades} {7-Hearts} {6-Clubs} / (x)

On third street, D'Agostino tried to raise, but there was some confusion and he ended up flatting instead. Violette bet her lead on fourth, D'Agostino raised, and both Clements and Violette called. D'Agostino got another bet in on fifth street, then another on sixth. On sixth, though, Clements found a raise, and that folded Violette out of the way. D'Agostino called the extra bet, though, then check-called one last bet on seventh.

Clements tabled Clements: {6-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {4-Diamonds} / {7-Spades} {6-Hearts} {3-Spades} {10-Clubs} as he announced his trip sixes. They were no good. D'Agostino rolled over {Q-Hearts} {Q-Spades} {3-Clubs} / {Q-Clubs} {2-Spades} {7-Hearts} {6-Clubs}, and his set of ladies were the best set.

That exchange has allowed D'Agostino to climb out of the basement and back up to about 11,500.

Scott Clements us 19,000 -3,500
