Event #18: $10,000 Dealer's Choice 6-Handed

Stuart Rutter Eliminated in 2nd Place ($181,258)

tRaMSt0p • Level 32: 150,000-300,000, 0 ante
Stuart Rutter and Adam Friedman

Stud Hi-Lo

Stuart Rutter had the bring-in and Adam Friedman completed to 150,000. Rutter responded with a raise back to 300,000 and Friedman called.

Friedman led out for 150,000 on fourth street, and Rutter raised. Friedman called and then led on fifth for 300,000 as Rutter called.

On sixth street, Friedman bet out 300,000, and Rutter called all in for 290,000.

Stuart Rutter: {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts} / {8-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Adam Friedman: {10-Clubs}{3-Spades} / {10-Hearts}{5-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

Friedman held queens-up, while Rutter was all in and at-risk holding a low-draw and a pair of deuces.

On seventh, Friedman's hand remained the same as he found the {A-Hearts}, and now Rutter would need help to stay alive.

Any six, five, four, or ace would guarantee Rutter half, while a deuce would see him scoop the entire pot.

Unfortunately for the Brit, his final card would be the {7-Diamonds} giving him a less superior two-pair, and consequently force him to the rail in 2nd place for a $181,258 payday.
