Event 32 - $2,000 Seven Card Stud

Late Start Not an Issue for Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu has already compensated for his late start, winning a nice-sized pot with sixes full of aces. Here's how it went down:

Negreanu: x-x-{A-Spades}
Opponent: x-x-{K-Hearts}

Action: Negreanu bet, opponent called.

Negreanu: x-x-{A-Spades}{4-Spades}
Opponent: x-x-{K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

Action: Negreanu checked, opponent bet, Negreanu called.

Negreanu: x-x-{A-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Opponent: x-x-{K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades}

Action: Negreanu checked, opponent bet, Negreanu raised, opponent called.

Negreanu: x-x-{A-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Opponent: {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades}{6-Clubs}

Action: Negreanu bet, opponent called.

On the river, Daniel bet in the dark and his opponent made the call. Daniel turned over {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades}, for sixes full and his opponent mucked. Daniel now has 4,500 chips.

Mel Makes 'Em Fold

Showing {J-Hearts}{A-Hearts}, Mel Judah bet out on fourth street against an ultra-aggressive Yuebin Guo, whose upcards were {10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}.

Guo, who almost always gives action, mucked his hand, and Judah turned over a pair of aces in the hole, saying, "That's a shame."

Mel has an impressive Seven Card Stud resume; he's won two WSOP bracelets in stud and currently ranks second on the all-time seven-stud money list at the WSOP (Artie Cobb owns the top spot).

Mel also placed third at the 1997 WSOP Main Event -- the only time the event was held outdoors (also the year Stu Ungar captured his third World Title).

Tony G. Juices the Party

After having posted a victory in his second round match of the Heads-Up Championship, Tony G. showed up in the Player's Pavilion to play some Seven Card Stud.

Having bet every street prior to sixth, Tony fired a fourth bullet showing {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{K-Spades} and his opponent called with upcards of {7-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}{K-Clubs}.

When his opponent made the call, Tony asked, "Do you want a spade?"

Tony checked the river and his opponent bet $150, suggesting he'd hit the river. Tony made the call and his opponent flipped over {A-Spades}{J-Spades}{2-Spades}, for an ace-high flush.

The hand left Tony with 2,700 chips.

Nick Frangos Bops Kings with Aces

Just before the break, Nick Frangos took down a nice pot with a pair of exposed aces against an opponent's pocket kings:

Frangos: {A-Hearts}{5-Spades}{A-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}
Opponent: {5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{9-Spades}

Both players checked the river and Frangos' aces were good enough to take down the pot.

Frangos now has 5,700 chips.
