Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz

Michael Chow Eliminated in 7th Place ($22,945)

Michael Chow - 7th place

Michael Chow fired out a bet on the turn and was called by Phil Hellmuth, who was showing a pair of aces. Fifth street saw Chow fire out another bet, but this time Helluth quickly raised. "You can just say all in," Hellmuth told Chow, who only had 10,000 behind. While he didn't say it, Chow did commit it.

Chow: {8-}{4-} / {3-}{2-}{4-}{J-} / {3-}
Hellmuth: {2-}{5-} / {A-}{A-}{3-}{9-} / {10-}

Sixth street gave Hellmuth a nine-low, which meant Chow needed to improve on seventh. He squeezed out his card and didn't see any pips, meaning it was either a deuce, three or ace. "You've got two of the aces though," Chow said, knowing it was the only card that would save his tournament life. He then flipped and revealed a {3-}. With that, Hellmuth chipped up to 500,000 and sent Chow home in seventh place.
