2014 World Series of Poker

Event #34: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud
Days: 2

Smith Orders a Double-Double

Level 19 : 6,000-12,000, 1,500 ante

Mallory Smith completed and then got it all in when Steve Sung raised to isolate him.

Smith: {6-Hearts}{4-Spades}/{6-Clubs}
Sung: {8-Spades}{2-Diamonds}/{8-Hearts}

Smith caught two threes to make sixes up, while Sung failed to improve.

A couple of hands later, Nabih Helmi completed with {9-Spades}, and Smith raised with {j-Spades}. Helmi made the call, and Smith bet fourth when he caught {a-Hearts}. Helmi got the {6-Spades}, and he called. The rest of the money went in when both players caught good on fifth:

Smith: {a-Spades}{10-Spades}/{j-Spades}{a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Helmi: {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}/{9-Spades}{6-Spades}{9-Hearts}

Helmi needed to fill up and have Smith not do the same, but Smith ran a flush with {7-Spades} and {q-Spades} while Helmi got bricks in the {5-Diamonds} and {8-Spades}.
