Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Good Save By Douglas

Chau Giang (Day 1)

After Barry Greenstein brought in with the {2-Hearts} up, Shane Douglas was next in line with the {K-Clubs} showing and completed. Chau Giang was the only caller.

Douglas: (x)(x) / {K-Clubs}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} / (X)
Giang: (x)(x) / {9-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} / (x)

On fourth street, Douglas bet and Giang called. The same action happened on fifth, but then Giang picked up the leading hand with a pair of nines showing on sixth. He led with a bet and Douglas called. On seventh, Giang bet again. Douglas took a bit of time and then finally made the call.

Giang turned over the {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for nines full of jacks. Douglas showed that he made three queens with the {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}, but it was a losing hand. The table were astonished by how disciplined Douglas was in not raising on seventh and saving some bets.
