Event #39: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better

Previous Champion Exits

• Lygis 2: 75-150, 25 ante

After over-hearing a player state that the player on his left was a previous champion of this very event - along with many others playing today - we decided to venture over to his table to find out who he was and how he was going so far today.

Our PokerNews reporter had bad timing.

Finding the said champion betting every street until he was all in for his last 50 on seventh, the champion had his board spread {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds} / {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts} / {4-Clubs}.

However it would be his opponent's {5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} / {3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Spades} / {3-Diamonds} that would see him eliminate the previous champion before we even had a chance to grab his story!
