Event 32 - $2,000 Seven Card Stud

Flush Over Flush Nets Cindy Violette a Big Pot

WSOP bracelet winner Cindy Violette just took down a big pot with an Ace-high diamond flush against an opponent's King-high club flush.

These were the upcards:

Violette: {A-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Opponent: {J-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{K-Hearts}

Cindy bet the river and her opponent raised, showing only two clubs. Cindy made the call and her opponent turned over three clubs in the hole, for a King-high flush. Cindy coolly revealed an Ace-high flush to take down the pot.

She now has almost 5,000 chips.

Barbara Enright Wins an Early Pot

In a three-way pot, Barbara made a raise on fifth street showing {8-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}, representing a straight.

By the river, these were the players' upcards:

Barbara Enright: {8-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Opponent 1: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Opponent 2: {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}

The action was checked to Barbara, who fired one last bet on the river. Opponent 1 called and opponent 2 mucked his hand. Barbara revealed J-10 for a Queen-high straight and her opponent showed A-K before mucking his hand, adding that he'd made two pair with the first 4 cards he was dealt.

Barbara's accolades are truly remarkable. She was the first woman to win an open WSOP bracelet, the first to win the Ladies Event twice, and the highest placing female in WSOP Main Event history (5th in 1995).

Each time she sits down at the table, she's a force to be reckoned with; we'll keep you posted on her progress throughout the day.

Stud's Studs are Here

Among some of the big names we've spotted so far are Seven Card Stud specialists Artie Cobb, Barbara Enright, Mel Judah, Greg Raymer, Chip Reese and Marcel Luske.

Despite running concurrently with both the Heads-up Championship and $3,000 no-limit final table, where Phil Hellmuth is going for his 12th bracelet, the stud event has attracted plenty of big names and should produce some great headlines.

Shuffle Up and Deal

Event 32, Seven Card Stud (Limit), with a $2,000 buy-in is now underway.

Almost all of the tables in the Amazon Room are being used for the heads-up tournament, so this event is being held in the Player's Pavilion, just outside the main poker room.

Conditions in the pavilion are not nearly as bad as they were the first couple weeks of the World Series; the air conditioning system is functioning properly today and the wind is not a factor, so the conditions are player friendly.

Stay tuned for a list of notable players in the field.
