Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Buss Boosts Stack

[user101598] • Level 2: 75-150, 25 ante

Jerry Buss, owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, was in a three-way pot with the hands looking like this:

Buss - (x) (x) / {4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}
Opponent 1 - (x) (x) / {10-Spades}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Opponent 2 - (x) (x) / {2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{7-Spades}

On sixth street, Buss' first opponent was dealt the {q-Hearts} and bet. Buss called after being dealt the {j-Hearts}, and the second opponent mucked before we could catch his card. Buss and his opponent were dealt a down card, and Buss' opponent checked. Buss sweated his cards and bet.

"Well," his opponent sighed. "Have to pay to see it."

His opponent called, and Buss rolled over {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs} for an ace-high flush.
