Event 4: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better

First Lady of Stud

Linda Johnson
Linda Johnson

We just saw a three-way pot that left Linda Johnson (10,500) and another player (4,700) all-in on third street. Steve Billirakis was looking for the double KO. Here's how the boards ran out:

Johnson: ({Q-Clubs} {Q-Spades}) / {6-Hearts} {K-Spades} {8-Clubs} {4-Hearts} / ({Q-Diamonds})
Billirakis: ({J-Clubs} {10-Hearts}) / {10-Clubs} {6-Spades} {J-Hearts} (x) / ({Q-Hearts})
Opponent: ({5-Clubs} {2-Hearts}) / {5-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} {7-Spades} {A-Diamonds} / ({A-Spades})

Billirakis pulled into the lead midway through the hand, but Johnson caught her third queen on the river to take the pot.

O'Dell Downs Shchmelev

Vladimir Shchemelev
Vladimir Shchemelev

We saw the floor, Bob Smith, handing Vladimir Shchmelev a green payout card, which is what he gives to the players once they bust. We didn't get to the table in time to see the hands, but we do know Shchmelev was felled by two-time bracelet winner Frankie O'Dell, who captured gold in the 2003 WSOP Event #29 $1500 Omaha Hi/Lo and 2007 WSOP $2,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split for $133,760 and $240,057 respectively.

Tehan Busts

Joe Tehan - out
Joe Tehan - out

We just caught a part of this hand, and it's easier to summarize then give details for this one.

Joe Tehan has just been sent packing by Michael Mizrachi. Tehan was getting short on chips when he committed himself to the pot with an eighty-seven low and not much for a high. Mizrachi could do much better, and his straight and seven-low gave him the pot and the knockout.

Good Run, Mike!

Mike Sexton
Mike Sexton

Mike Sexton has just rejoined our field after his Event #3 matchup with Andy Frankenberger.

Things did not go so well for Sexton this time around. All of the money got in on an {8-} {6-} {2-} flop with Sexton holding top and bottom pair. Frankenberger had flopped top two, though, and Sexton was unable to find a life-saving deuce.

He's been eliminated from that event, and his pockets are $9,644 fuller as he returns to our Event #4. Sexton may well make another deep run in this thing.

Pateychuk Limps Home

Andrey Pateychuk - not the bubble boy!
Andrey Pateychuk - not the bubble boy!

We mentioned Andrey Pateychuk earlier today for his impressive record in the last calendar year. Now, he's getting a second mention for nitting his way into a mini-cash.

Pateychuk lost most of his chips during the previous level, and he was on full life support as the money bubble hit. Players aren't allowed to stand and sweat the action during hand-for-hand play, so Pateychuk was relegated to his seat in the far corner, occasionally craning his neck to check on the commotion across the room.

He's made it. With just 1,600 lonely chips left, Pateychuk has just crept into the money, guaranteeing himself $2,754 and the second WSOP cash of his career.

Kaplan is Our Bubble Boy


We caught the action on fourth street after Vladimir Shchmelev had bet and Jaime Kaplan moved all in for 900 more. Shchmelev made the call and the hands were tabled.

Shchmelev: {A-Spades}{7-Clubs} / {K-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{9-Clubs}{10-Hearts} / {3-Diamonds}
Kaplan: {3-Hearts}{6-Clubs} / {5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Clubs}(X) / {J-Clubs}

Shchmelev's aces didn't improve, but they didn't need to as Kaplan could make neither a low nor a bigger high. The rest of the tables played out their hands to ensure no one else busted, and then Kaplan made a gracious exit as the Event #4 $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better bubble boy.

"Finish the Hand and Hold Up"

[user66118] • Ниво 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Those words are music to the ears of the players, as it means we're one off the money. Sixty-one players remain, sixty will be paid, and we're dealing hand-for-hand until we burst our bubble.
