Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Bloch Gets Lucky, Doubles Up

tayke2 • Level 16: 3,000-6,000, 700 ante

Bloch: {2-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} / {q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{q-Spades} / (x)
Ghaneian: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs} / {8-Clubs}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts} / (x)

Andy Bloch just got a much needed double up after dipping below 10,000 under an hour ago. Bloch raised on third and fourth street, with Ghaneian calling both times. On fifth street, Bloch bet, and got raised all in by Ghaneian. Bloch called, and saw that he was in trouble with Ghaneian showing trip fives against his two pair. However, Bloch turned the tides with the {q-Spades} on sixth street to virtually end the hand. Ghaneian couldn't catch the miracle five for quads, and Bloch's stack grew to 39,000. Ghaneian dropped to 98,000.
