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

Monnette Stands His Ground


We caught a heads-up pot between Xuan Liu and John Monnette.

Liu: (x-x) / {4-Clubs} {7-Spades} {2-Spades} {Q-Spades} / (x)
Monnette: (x-x) / {4-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} / (x)

Monnette led the betting on fifth street, but Liu bet her own lead on sixth. Monnette called a bet there, and another one on seventh.

Liu: {10-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {2-Clubs} / {4-Clubs} {7-Spades} {2-Spades} {Q-Spades}
Monnette: {K-Hearts} {3-Hearts} {3-Clubs} / {4-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {10-Diamonds}

A pair of treys beats a pair of ducks any day, and Monnette's persistence earned him the full pot.
