Kihara Scoops Glaser to Chip Up

zedmaster84 • Level 22: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Naoya Kihara

Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo

Naoya Kihara: {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} / {j-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} / {8-Hearts}
Benny Glaser: {j-Spades}{7-Clubs} / {j-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{4-Spades}{6-Spades} / {k-Hearts}

Dan Cates folded pocket tens in the hole while Naoya Kihara completed and then called a raise by Benny Glaser. It was Glaser who bet his lead on fourth and received a call. Glaser then check-called fifth street and did so again on sixth street.

Glaser checked seventh street on which Kihara completed his flush and bet. After some consideration, Glaser sigh-called and was scooped as Kihara boosted his short stack.

Right after the hand was over, the players went on a very short colour up break but the action will resume shortly.
