Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Smith's Spades

Justin "Boosted J" Smith{x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} / {x-}
Maria Ho{x-}{x-} / {j-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts} / {x-}

When we reached the table, Justin Smith led out on fourth street. Maria Ho raised, Smith re-raised, and Ho called. Smith led again on fifth, but when Ho raised this time, he just called. On sixth, Smith scaled it back even more, opting to just check-call a bet from Ho. Both players knuckled on seventh.

Smith immediately rolled over {k-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} for a flush, and Ho showed {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} before mucking.

"Trying to trap?" Dan Shak needled, smiling. "It only took you three streets to get there."

Smith grinned, but said nothing.
