Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

How'd Tryba Get Those Chips?

• Taso 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Chris Tryba has been on a tear lately. He just had rolled up eights versus the full house of Kevin McGuinness to move to nearly 100,000 in chips. He also eliminated Craig Neilan on the hand.

McGuinness: (x)(x) / {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Spades} / (x)
Tryba: (x)(x) / {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} / (x)
Neilan: (x)(x) / {J-Spades}{6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} / (x)

McGuinness was betting the entire way and Tryba was just calling while Neilan got the last of his money in on fourth street. On sixth street, Tryba decided to put a raise in and McGuinness made the call. McGuinness and Tryba then got into a raising way on seventh street, but when it was over, Tryba was the one with the last laugh.

Tryba had started with rolled up eights and went on to make quads when he turned up the {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{8-Spades}. McGuinness showed two queens from his down cards to reveal he made queens full of sixes, but that was no good. Neilan simply mucked and headed to the rail.

Tryba, who began the day with 5,700 in chips, is now crushing and in the chip lead with 99,000. He already cashed in Event 4: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better and has quite a few other Seven Card Stud results to his name. Last year, Tryba finished eighth in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship for $38,812 and 16th in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Championship for $27,888.
