Event 10: $5,000 Seven Card Stud

Chen Crippled

Oh no, Mr. Bill Chen!

Bill Chen just played a pot for all but a few of his chips against Max Pescatori.

Chen: (x-x) / {7-Spades} {2-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} / (x)
Pescatori: (x-x) / {2-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} {K-Hearts} / (x)

There was a bet and a call when we walked up on fifth street, and Pescatori asked Chen how much he had left. It wasn't much, just 14,500. Still, Pescatori checked on sixth, and Chen seemed pleased to see a free card. On seventh, Pescatori made his last bet, and Chen resigned himself to the call.

"Two pair," Pescatori said quickly.

"Good," Chen answered back even quicker. Pescatori rolled over {4-Diamonds} {4-Spades} {2-Hearts} / {2-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} {K-Hearts}, and fours and deuces get the job done.

Chen has just 4,500 chips left.

Bill Chen us 4,500 -27,500
