Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Thompson Moves Way Up

William Thompson just won a big pot to move to 66,000 in chips and we were able to hear his celebration all the way across the room. He was involved against Jeet Shetty, Cheryl Bradley and Larry St. Jean.

Shetty: (x)(x) / {8-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{4-Spades} / (x)
Bradley: (x)(x) / {3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{7-Clubs} / (x)
Thompson: (x)(x) / {7-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} / (x)
St. Jean: (x)(x) / {8-Spades}{J-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Spades} / (x)

Shetty had completed on third street and all three of the other players called. On fourth street, Shetty's king high was the best hand showing and he bet again. All three players called.

On fifth street, Shetty bet once more and Bradley called. Thompson then raised and behind him, St. Jean called. Then Shetty reraised and Bradley called. Thompson raised again and St. Jean called. Shetty then called and Bradley called.

On sixth street, there wasn't as much action as on fifth, but there was action. Shetty and Bradley checked before Thompson bet. All three of his opponents made the call. Finally on seventh, all four of the active players in the hand checked.

Thompson rolled over the {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for a ten-high straight. No one else could beat his hand and they all mucked. Thompson won the pot and moved into second place on the leader board.
