Event 10: $5,000 Seven Card Stud

Tom Headed in the Right Direction

Philip Tom made the call after the player in Seat 8 completed, and then check-called a bet on the turn. Fifth street saw Tom pair up and he wasted little time in leading out, and this time it was Seat 8's turn to call. The same action occurred on sixth street before both players checked seventh.

Seat 8: (x-x) / {9-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} / (x)
Tom: {3-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} / {3-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{3-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Tom's trip threes was enough to take down the pot, increasing his stack to 18,200. That's still about half the average, but it's a step in the right direction.

Philip Tom us 18,200 9,100
