Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Julien Martini: {2-Hearts}{9-Clubs} / {4-Hearts}{j-Spades}{4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} / {x-}
Besim Hot: {10-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} / {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} / {x-}

Julien Martini was all in on third street against Besim Hot and paired his four on fifth, while Hot had a flush draw on sixth. Martini peeled the {a-Hearts} and remained with a pair of fours, however, Hot missed it all with the {6-Clubs} as final card and they chopped as Hot had a low.

Julien Martini: {6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} / {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Hearts} / {x-}
Alex Livingston: {x-}{x-} / {q-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{6-Hearts} fold
Daniel Negreanu: {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} / {4-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} / {x-}

Martini was then all in for 505,000 after completing and a raise by Alex Livingston and a call by Daniel Negreanu. On fourth, Livingston and Negreanu checked and Negreanu bet fifth to force out Livingston. Martini had a made straight but Negreanu had two pair and a straight flush draw.

A blank {k-Diamonds} for Martini was revealed first and Negreanu somehow missed everything with the {2-Clubs}.

He recorded with his phone and said "three pair don't beat a straight."
