Hand #4: Vladimir Shchemelev's stay at the final table was short but sweet. The Russian, who lives in St. Petersburg, has more than $1.4 million in WSOP winnings, and this marked his seventh WSOP final table*.
*In 2010, Shchemelev became the first-ever WSOP player to make three final tables in the $10,000 or higher buy-in level.
In Shchemelev's final hand, he completed with the and both Tony Cousineau and Mike Leah made the call. Leah then led out on fifth, Shchemelev raised for his last 28,000 and Cousineau got out of the way. Leah made the call and the cards were tabled.
Leah ended up making a pair of sevens on sixth, and that's what he ended with on seventh. Unfortunately for Shchemelev, he didn't draw much better. He ended up needing some help on seventh, but the he received wasn't enough. Shchemelev missed his low and a winning high, and Leah was pushed the pot.
