Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Buchman Misreads his Hand, Claims Chip Lead

tayke2 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Katchalov: (x)(x) / {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} / (x)
Buchman: (x)(x) / {5-Spades}{j-Spades}{3-Hearts}{k-Clubs} / (x)

Katchalov completed on third street, and Eric Buchman three-bet it with the five showing. Katchalov called, then checked call on fourth and fifth street. Katchalov then bet out when he paired his ten on sixth, and Buchman slowed down and just called. The two checked down seventh street, and Katchalov revealed {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for the pair of tens he had showing. Buchman lifted his cards and started to muck, then stated "I'm sorry I'm sorry I misread my hand" and showed {3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} for two pair. Katchalov didn't seem too upset about the mistake, and Buchman dragged the pot to take the lead at 475,000. Katchalov dropped down to 410,000.
