Event #23: $2,500 Seven-Card Stud

Dia 3 Iniciado

Stud Championship Down to 10; Frank Kassela Leads

Chip Leader Frank Kassela
Chip Leader Frank Kassela

Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and the 2013 World Series of Poker for the final day of the Event #23: $2,500 Seven Card Stud!

What started with 246 players on Wednesday evening, sees just 10 players remaining all with an equal chance of writing their names in the WSOP history books and claiming the gold bracelet and $145,520 in first-place prize money. The WSOP history books will not only see a bracelet winner crowned but potentially see a player carve their name in those books as being one of the game's greats.

Chip leader already has two stud bracelets but they are both in Stud Eight-or-Better and Razz, so he can become one of the select few to own a stud bracelet in each discipline with a win here. David Chiu has four bracelets to his name with the last coming in 2005, and if he can grab his second stud one today he will join a list of players that include Daniel Negreanu, Jeffrey Lisandro, John Juanda and Stu Unger who each have five. Michael Mizrachi however can join Chiu with four, and with two Poker Player's Championships his mixed games are second-to-none over the past few years.

Freddie Ellis, Adam Friedman and Gary Benson can't be forgotten as they each have a bracelet in this game. Ellis won the Stud Championship back in 2009 while Friedman won a Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo bracelet last year. However if Benson can win the event today he will become what we believe the player with the longest gap between bracelets as he won his Stud bracelet in 1996 - 17 years ago.

Mizrachi Scoops, Friedman Crippled

Nível 19 : 6,000/12,000, 1,500 ante

Catching the action fifth street we found Adam Friedman betting out 12,000 with Gary Benson making the call before Michael Mizrachi raised. Both players called before Friedman bet out on sixth and both Benson and Mizrachi called.

On seventh the action was checked to Mizrachi who bet out 12,000 with both Friedman and Benson calling as each player's boards read as follows.

Friedman: {X-}{X-} / {6-Spades}{2-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{10-Spades} / {X-}
Benson: {X-}{X-} / {8-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{6-Clubs} / {X-}
Mizrachi: {X-}{X-} / {4-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} / {X-}

Mizrachi tabled his {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a flush while Benson and Friedman folded; with the later flashing his {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}{Q-Hearts}. With that pot Friedman is now crippled with just over a big bet as Mizrachi surges up the leaderboard.

Call The Police

Nível 19 : 6,000/12,000, 1,500 ante

Benson had the bring-in with the {2-Clubs} and the action folded round giving him a walk.

"Call the police!" stated Gary Benson.

From memory, that is the first walk the PokerNews live reporting team has seen all tournament.

Jesse Martin Eliminated in 10th Place ($11,008)

Nível 19 : 6,000/12,000, 1,500 ante
Jesse Martin - 10th place
Jesse Martin - 10th place

Jesse Martin completed and David Chiu raised. Martin raised all-in for 22,000 and Chiu made the call as both player's board ran out as follows to seventh.

Martin: {7-Spades}{2-Clubs} / {7-Hearts}{J-Spades}{10-Spades}{J-Hearts} / {X-}
Chiu: {A-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} / {6-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{3-Hearts} / {X-}

With Martin trailing, he wasn't able to improve to a full house as he found the {K-Clubs} to bust in 10th place.

Broadway for Mizrachi

Nível 19 : 6,000/12,000, 1,500 ante

Michael Mizrachi completed before Adam Friedman raised. Gary Benson made the call, as did Mizrachi before Friedman bet on fourth and fold just the lone call from Mizrachi. Mizrachi took the lead on fifth and sixth with Friedman check-calling each time.

Mizrachi: {X-}{X-} / {10-Spades}{J-Spades}{Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds} / {X-}
Friedman: {X-}{X-} / {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{6-Clubs} / {X-}
Benson: {X-}{X-} / {6-Spades}{10-Diamonds} (folded on fourth)

On seventh Mizrachi bet out 12,000 and Friedman called showing his {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for aces-up, but it would be Mizrachi's {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for Broadway that would see him capture the pot.
