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

Obst Takes The Lead

[user20283] • Taso 15: 3,000-6,000, 700 ante
James Obst

James Obst and John Cernuto just played a big pot and the former managed to take it down. Jesse Martin completed after Nikolay Losev had the bring in and Cernuto raised. Obst three-bet and the action folded back to Cernuto who made the call.

On fourth street Cernuto bet with the high board and Obst called. On fifth Obst hit a pair and checked, Cernuto checked behind. Sixth street gave Obst two pair up and he checked to Cernuto's dangerous looking board. Cernuto bet and Obst check-raised, which got Cernuto to laugh.

Cernuto ultimately called and on seventh he called another bet when Obst threw out one more 6,000-chip bet.

Martin: {X-}{X-} / {9-Hearts} --fold
Cernuto: {X-}{X-} / {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} / {X-}
Obst: {X-}{X-} / {4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Spades} / {X-}

Obst showed {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for a full house and he took down this big pot.
