Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Schwartz Stumbles


Ylon Schwartz completed with the {10-Hearts} showing, and was called by an opponent with the {j-Hearts}. On fourth street, Schwartz received the {q-Diamonds} and checked to his opponent who bet after being dealt the {7-Clubs}. Schwartz called. Schwartz again checked after receiving the {8-Clubs} on fifth street, his opponent was dealt the {a-Spades} and bet. Schwartz again called.

The {q-Hearts} on sixth street paired Schwartz, and for the first time he led out. His opponent raised with the {9-Diamonds}, and Schwartz called. The dealer then began to deal seventh street face up (it was the {2-Spades}) but stopped before the entire table could see the card. Only the reporters and an anonymous player in the one-seat saw the card, so play continued as usual. Schwartz check-called one more big bet, and mucked his hand when his opponent opened {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for aces-up.

Schwartz - (x) (x) / {10-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{q-Hearts} / {2-Spades}
Opponent - {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} / {j-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{a-Spades}{9-Diamonds} / {10-Diamonds}
