Kessler: {x-}{x-} / {4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{9-Spades}{10-Spades} / {x-}
Fleck: {x-}{x-} / {5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{10-Hearts}folded on fifth street
Luneau: {x-}{x-} / {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} / {x-}

Suchanek: {x-}{x-} / {q-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades} / {x-}

Allen Kessler completed and got four callers. Jan Suchanek checked fourth street, Kessler bet, and again got four callers. On fifth street, it checked to Alex Luneau who bet. Randy Ohel and Katherine Fleck both folded, but Kessler and Suchanek stuck around.

The remaining three players checked sixth and seventh street.

"That's my high," said Suchanek, separating his king-queen out. "But I have the low."

Luneau showed {6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{x-} for an eight-six low and Suchanek mucked. Kessler was also on the verge of mucking his {3-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Clubs}, but at the very last second realised that his pair of deuces was good enough for the high.

"Wow," said Kessler, "I had so many outs to scoop."

"Allen Kessler, everybody," said tablemate Mike Gorodinsky. "Gets half with deuces; still complains!"
