Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Vinh's Two Pair Bests Baxter

Huu Vinh was one of the big stacks coming into the day and just took a pot off Mike Baxter to move to 95,000 in chips. Marco Traniello was also involved in the hand, but folded on sixth street.

Baxter: (x)(x) / {4-Spades}{10-Spades}{A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} / (x)
Vinh: (x)(x) / {8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades}{K-Hearts} / (x)
Traniello: (x)(x) / {9-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{J-Hearts} / (x)

Baxter had to bring it in and did so before Vinh completed. Traniello called and then Baxter also called. On fourth street, Baxter checked the best hand showing and Vinh bet. Traniello called and Baxter called.

On fifth street, all three players checked. Then on sixth, Baxter bet, Vinh raised, Traniello folded and Baxter called.

On seventh street — the final street — Baxter check-called a bet from Vinh.

Baxter mucked when he saw Vinh turn over {K-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{x-} for king and eights and lost the pot.
