Event #61: $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship

Helppi Takes Out Wasserson

• Nivel 11: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Eric Wasserson caught a bad run of cards while being very short, but eventually he decided to commit to a hand which put him at risk. Wasserson called all-in for 100 and Juha Helppi completed from his immediate left. Richard Ashby called the completion and the other players folded.

On fourth street, Helppi bet and Ashby called.

"Queen!" Wasseron called out before the dealer dealt fifth street.

Wasserson received a queen and said, "That's how it's done!" while Hellmuth laughed. Helppi bet again and Ashby called.

On sixth street, Helppi checked. When Ashby bet, Wasserson got worried his hand would not survive. Helppi called and on seventh both players checked.

Wasserson: {X-}{X-} / {6-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{7-Clubs} / {X-}
Helppi: {X-}{X-} / {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{7-Spades} / {X-}
Ashby: {X-}{X-} / {9-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{4-Spades}{10-Clubs} / {X-}

Ashby showed {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades} for two pair, Helppi tabled {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for a better two pair and Wasserson sweated his last card. Wasserson ultimately showed {3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and he was knocked out from the tournament.
