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

Bari Doubles, Loses a Pot, Then Doubles Again

After doubling through Phil Ivey, Allen Bari was in a pot against Bryn Kenney. Bari's board was {5-Spades}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades}{9-Spades}, and Kenney's was {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Bari called a bet from Kenney on seventh street, and Kenney turned over two diamonds for a flush, and a three and a six for a sixty-five low.

"You hold the deck over me forever I guess," Bari sighed.

A few hands later, Ivey brought it in with the {2-Diamonds}. Bari completed with the {8-Diamonds}, Brian Twete called with the {8-Spades}, and Ivey called as well. On fourth street, the action checked to Bari who bet. Only Ivey called. On fifth, Bari check-raised all in, and Ivey quickly called.

Ivey{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} / {2-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Bari{7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} / {8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Ivey was dealt the {q-Spades} on sixth street, Bari the {j-Spades}, and Ivey immediately flipped over the {q-Hearts} when it was dealt to him on seventh. Bari quickly squeezed his card, and was very happy to see that it was the {10-Diamonds}, giving him a winning flush.
