Phan Sweats It

Stud Hi/Lo:

A good Stud/8 sweat for the table, although Young Phan was the one sweating for his tournament life.

Phan: (x-x) / {7-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {3-Spades}...
Opponent: (x-x) / {2-Spades} {6-Clubs} {9-Diamonds}...

Phan got it all in on fifth street, and he was in front. He revealed {6-Hearts} {6-Diamonds}, working with two pair. Mr. Opponent had {8-Clubs} {8-Hearts} down, and Phan didn't like his spot so much anymore. By seventh, the boards looked like this:

Phan: {6-Hearts} {6-Diamonds} / {7-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {3-Spades} {A-Spades} / (x)
Opponent: {8-Clubs} {8-Hearts} / {2-Spades} {6-Clubs} {9-Diamonds} {4-Spades} / (x)

Phan was still in front for the high half, and he made his low with the {8-Diamonds} on seventh. That meant he was guaranteed to survive, though neither player appeared to realize it. His opponent snagged a {5-Clubs} on seventh to take the low half, though, and Phan is still down in the danger zone.

Young Phan us 30,000 -24,000
