In what was the final hand of a rather uneventful round of stud-8, Sebastian Saffari brought in and Scott Abrams completed. Christopher George called and Saffari stuck around.

Abrams checked on fourth street and George fired out a bet. Saffari called and Abrams called as well. George was first to act on fifth and checked his option. This time it was Saffari who led out and Abrams called once more. Geroge stayed the course and Saffari paired up his sevens on sixth. He led out once again and received two callers.

Saffari led out one last time on seventh and Abrams mucked his hand. George tossed out a raise and Saffari called.

"Straight to the seven," said George, fanning {7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{4-Spades}.

Saffari looked stunned as he flashed {8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for two pair and an eight-low. George was able to scoop up this massive pot and now sits on about 630,000 in chips.
