• Taso 20
Mark Klecan dragged a huge pot.

Stud Eight or Better

Eddie Blumenthal completed with {a-Spades}, and three players came along. Blumenthal bet fourth street, and everyone called once again. He then bet fifth street with the following boards out:

Blumenthal: {a-Spades}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Mark Klecan: {2-Spades}{7-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Jeff Tims: {4-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Darin Thomas: {5-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Spades}
George Rechnitzer: {10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}

Klecan and Tims called, then Thomas raised. Rechnizter cold-called. Blumenthal folded, Klecan called and Tims called. The dealer sent out sixth street.

Klecan: {10-Spades}
Tims: {9-Spades}
Thomas: {q-Hearts}
Rechnitzer: {j-Clubs}

Thomas once again took the betting lead, and everyone else called him. On seventh, everyone checked to Klecan, who bet. Tims and Thomas called, and Rechnizter folded.

"Trips," Klecan announced, revealing {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{6-Spades} as his down cards. Tims and Thomas slowly slid their cards to the dealer, and Klecan scooped the biggest pot of the tournament by far.
