Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Massive Chop

Nicholas Verkaik{x-}{x-} / {7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{4-Clubs} / {x-}
Phil Hellmuth{x-}{x-} / {j-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}{6-} / {x-}
Christopher George{x-}{x-} / {4-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}{k-Diamonds} / {x-}

We reached the table on seventh street, and Verkaik was already all in. Hellmuth bet enough to put George all in, he called, and all three hands were opened.


Verkaik apparently made aces-up on seventh, because he was very excited. George won the other half of the pot with the only qualifying low, but had he pulled a spade on seventh, he would've scooped the whole thing.
