Event #20: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Elezra Doubles Again

Djinn • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Anthony Zinno

In a strong run in the final level, Eli Elezra has doubled against Phongthep "Tab" Thiptinnakon. Betting on third and fourth streets, then switching to calling single bets on fifth and sixth, their hands before the final bet on the river:

Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{j-Hearts}{5-Spades}{8-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Thiptinnakon: {x-}{x-}/{7-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Elezra led after the final card was dealt for exactly 16,000 (the big bet) and Thiptinnakon called, but mucked when he saw Elezra's {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{q-Clubs} in the hole, making a queen-high straight.
