Stud Hi-Lo

Philip Long was in a huge three-way pot against Chris Vitch and Donny Rubinstein with all three players making it to seventh street. There was over 200,000 in the middle of the table and Long's board showed three wheel cards and a pair of fives. Vitch folded his hand but Rubinstein called with two aces out.

"Wheel," Long said, tabling his hand and Rubinstein only nodded. The defending champion scooped it all and vaulted over 500,000-mark.

Vitch: {x-}{x-}{x-} / {4-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{9-Clubs} - folded on seventh
Rubinstein: {x-}{x-}{x-} / {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Spades}
Long: {5-}{4-}{3-} / {a-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}
