Event #34: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud

Kravchenko Ships Four-Way Pot to Survive

• Taso 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Alex Kravchenko found new life with a flush.

In the last hand before the level changed, Bryn Kenney completed with the {3-Hearts} and got raised by Eric Buchman with the {q-Diamonds}. William Thompson cold-called with {9-Hearts}, and Alex Kravchenko came in from the bring-in {2-Spades}. Fourth street started with Kravchenko betting the {k-Spades}, Kenney coming along with {7-Clubs}, and Buchman raising with the {4-Clubs}. Kravchenko made it three bets and got three callers. Kravchenko then called off his last 4,000 on fifth street when Buchman fired out after getting the high board. The other two players came along as well.

Thompson: {x-}{x-}/{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Kravchenko: {x-}{x-}/{2-Spades}{k-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Kenney: {x-}{x-}/{3-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Buchman: {x-}{x-}/{q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Buchman kept the lead on sixth, then everyone checked seventh.

Thompson: {a-}{9-}{k-}/{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Kravchenko: {10-Spades}{9-Spades}{4-Spades}/{2-Spades}{k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Kenney: {x-}{x-}/{3-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Buchman: {x-}{x-}/{q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Kravchenko had caught a flush on the river to drag the huge main pot, while Kenney and Buchman couldn't top the two pair of Thompson for the much smaller side pot.
