Straights For Everyone!

• Taso 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Mike Leah: {x-}{x-} / {k-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} / {x-}
Artie Cobb: {x-}{x-} / {5-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{k-Spades}{2-Clubs} / {x-}
Kristy Gazes: {x-}{x-} / {5-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} / {x-}

We caught up with the action on fifth street, where after a bet and two calls, Gazes and Cobb were both all in and at risk.

Leah: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}
Cobb: {4-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Gazes: {8-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

All three players made a straight on sixth, and Leah's improved to Broadway when he turned over the {a-Diamonds} on seventh. Cobb ({9-Clubs}) and Gazes ({j-Hearts}) both bricked.

Cobb won the low half of the main pot with a sixty-five, and Gazes, who had more chips than Cobb, won the low half of the side pot with an eighty-six. There was a bit of a dispute as to just how many chips Gazes would receive, and ultimately the table agreed upon 9,500.

She doubled twice after that, and now has around 30,000 chips.

Mike Leah ca 190,000 30,000

Kristy Gazes us 30,000 -24,000
