Event #20: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Zinno Rivers a Flush

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Anthony Zinno is regaining some of the ground lost in the last level to Eli Elezra. He defended with the {8-Diamonds} just now when Elezra, showing the {k-Spades}, made it 25,000 to go, and then bet when his eight paired. Elezra had picked up the {a-Spades}, and made the call, leading out himself when he paired higher with the {a-Clubs} on fifth street. Zinno called.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{k-Spades}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Elezra bet again. This time, Zinno reached for more: he made it 100,000 and Elezra called. With the final card dealt, Elezra bet out 50,000. As soon as he received a call, he gathered up all of his cards to muck, pausing to hold them fanned briefly as if attempting to find some combination that beat Zinno's {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}/{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} ace-high flush.
