Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Two Hands, No Color Up

[user101598] • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 3,000 ante
Zimnan Ziyard{x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}
John Monnette{x-}{x-} / {8-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Nikolai Yakovenko{x-}{x-} / {2-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} / {x-}

Yakovenko brought it in, Ziyard completed, and Monnette called. Yakovenko called as well, and Ziyard led out on fourth street. Only Yakovenko called. Ziyard led out on fifth, Yakovenko called again, and when Yakovenko paired on sixth, he checked. Ziyard bet, and Yakovenko called.

On seventh, Yakovenko led out for the first time. Ziyard called, and mucked when Yakovenko showed {8-Spades}{4-Hearts}{2-Spades} for trip deuces.

Immediately after the hand, the tournament director on hand asked Yakovenko if he could color up some of his yellow T1,000 chips.

"Not now," Yakovenko responded. "I want to watch the cards."

"Can we do it between hands?" the tournament director asked.

"Let's just do it on a break," Yakovenko told him. "I've recently suffered a brain injury. It's difficult to multi-task."

"He doesn't have to color up," Todd Brunson chimed in.

While all this was happening, Sven Arntzen, Adam Friedman, and John Monnette were involved in a pot.

Arntzen{x-}{x-} / {6-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Hearts}{j-Clubs} / {x-}
Friedman{x-}{x-} / {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts} / {x-}
Monnette{x-}{x-} / {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts} / {x-}

On fifth street, the action checked to Arntzen, who bet. Both Friedman, and Monnette called. On sixth, Friedman checked, Monnette bet, and both Arntzen and Friedman called. On seventh, Friedman checked, Monnette bet again, Arntzen called, and Friedman check-raised. Both Monnette and Arntzen called.

Friedman showed {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a flush, Monnette showed {8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} for a sixty-five low, and Arntzen flashed {5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Spades} before mucking.

Yakovenko is still unhappy about being asked to color up, and is requesting an apology from the floor.
