Event #38: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship

James Obst Eliminated in 6th Place ($37,904)

James Obst

Ben Yu had the bring-in and James Obst completed to 25,000. Yu called, and then called a bet on fourth street.

On fifth, Obst bet his last 25,000, and Yu called. Each player's board ran out as follows until seventh street:

Yu: {J-Clubs}{2-Spades} / {2-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{6-Clubs} / {x-}
Obst: {8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} / {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{A-Hearts} / [x]

Yu was in the lead with his split deuces, but Obst took the advantage on sixth when he paired his ace.

On seventh, Yu immediately revealed his final card to be the {6-Hearts} to give him two pair, and as Obst needed to find any ace, king, nine, eight, or deuce to stay alive, he could only squeeze out the {7-Clubs} and was eliminated in 6th place for a $37,904 payday.
