Better Badugi for Hui

Shamus • Level 9


We caught up with the action on the third and final draw, with Phillip Hui having been all in and standing pat since early on and three other players still vying for the pot. Jason Lester stood pat as did Hui (again), then Scott Nguyen drew one card.

It then appeared as though Joseph Deluca, acting last, stood pat as well, and Lester inaugurated the final betting round by saying he was checking. Deluca then said he hadn't decided whether to draw a card or not, and the floor was called to sort out the situation. Deluca was allowed to draw one card, then Lester checked again and it checked all the way around.

"I have a nine," said Lester, tabling his {9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades}, but Hui had him beat with an 8 Badugi with his {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}. As there was an all-in player both Nguyen and Deluca were made to show their hands, but neither had a winner, and Hui survived.
