Event #61: $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship

Rough Start for Friedman

[user20283] • Taso 12: 1,500-3,000, 300 ante

Adam Friedman started the day as one of the biggest stacks but we just saw him lose a pot to John Cernuto, which was likely one of many, as he's down to around 59,000 chips.

On sixth street, Friedman checked and Cernuto bet. Friedman called and both players checked on seventh street.

Friedman: {X-}{X-} / {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} / {X-}
Cernuto: {X-}{X-} / {K-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} / {X-}

"I can't beat two pair," Cernuto said when he checked behind.

"Me neither," Friedman replied.

Cernuto tabled {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a pair of sevens with an ace-king kicker, and Friedman looked long and hard at his cards before throwing them into the muck.
