Stud-Eight or Better

We caught up with the action on fourth street to find Amnon Filippi fire out a bet. Both Andy Bloch and Jim Collopy called to see fifth. Filippi who once again fired a bet that was called by both players.
On sixth street, Collopy took the lead with a bet and Filippi announced a raise. Bloch flat called and Collopy called off the rest of his chips.
Filippi fired dark into the side pot before seventh and Bloch called once he looked at his cards.
Bloch showed for a seventy-five low, but was ultimately behind Filipi's for sixty-four.
Collopy rolled over for just a pair of queens for the high. It was good against both of his opponents and a look of joy washed over his face.
"Neither of you have a pair?" asked Collopy. "I love stud-eight! I was ahead the whole way with ace-king-queen!"
Collopy was able to take half of the main pot and stay alive with around 10,000 in chips. Bloch was the only player to take a major hit and is now sitting on about 22,000.
