Event 10: $5,000 Seven Card Stud

Tough Tables

There really aren't any easy tables in a $5,000 Stud event, but a few of them stick out as particularly tough.

Table 356 has David Singer, Barry Greenstein, and Chris Tryba right in a row. Greenstein just finished runner-up to Andy Bloch in Event 7 last night, and he's back here for some more seven-card stud. Tryba has already made deep runs in two stud events this Series.

One table over, the one tagged 357 boards another tough trio. There we find John Monnette, Matt Glantz, and David Chiu lined up in the first three seats.

Table 362 has four very familiar faces in the form of Owais Ahmed, Perry Friedman, Roland Isra, and 2010 WSOP Stud Triple Crown winner and Player of the Year Jeff Lisandro.

And we'll finish up with Table 366 which seats Brett Richey and Justin Bonomo. We're not sure if they know it yet or not, but the 2009 champion of this event is seated across the table from them. Freddie Ellis outlasted a tough final table a few years ago to take down the bracelet and a cash prize of nearly $400,000.
