HillKerby • Level 17: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Stud Hi-Lo

Chris Vitch: {x-}{x-} / {3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{8-Hearts} / {x-}
John Esposito: {x-}{x-} / {7-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{6-Hearts} / {x-}
Josh Arieh: {x-}{x-} / {3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{k-Clubs} (folded on sixth)

Chris Vitch was the bring in. John Esposito completed and Arieh and Vitch called. On fourth and fifth streets, action checked to Vitch who bet and received calls by both players.

Action again checked to Vitch on sixth and he bet once more. Esposito announced a raise and Arieh thought for about a minute before folding. Vitch three-bet and Esposito called.

Both players checked the river and Vitch announced a pair of aces with a six-low, tabling {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}.

Esposito tabled {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{7-Spades} for jacks up, good for the high as the two split the pot.
