Seed Sends Bian Home Early

• Taso 1: 50-100, 0 ante

We made our way up to the feature stage to see which notables are playing on the ESPN mothership, and it was there that we discovered the likes of David Sklansky, Huck Seed, and Yang Bian. As fate would have it, we also caught a big hand.

The early details escaped us, but we arrived in time to see Bian get her stack all in on the turn with a board reading {4-Spades}{8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}.

"I guess we're chopping it," said Seed, who took down this very event back n 1996. "I hope you don't have diamonds."

Seed then turned over the {10-Spades}{j-Spades} for the nut straight. He assumed his opponent held the {10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} for a freeroll to diamonds, but he was surprised to see her table the {q-Hearts}{a-Spades} for just top pair, which had Bian drawing dead. The meaningless {2-Spades} was put out on the river and Bian collected her things before taking her leave just 30 minutes into Day 1b.
