Steely showed {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

The turn {3-Spades} gave Steely a set of threes, but Galfond a wheel. The river was the {k-Hearts} and Steely was eliminated. He takes home $50,086.

Phil Galfond potted from middle position and got action from Ali Abduljabbar and small blind Michael McKenna. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Galfond piled for 215,000. Abduljabbar called and McKenna mucked {k-}{k-}.

Phil Galfond: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Ali Abduljabbar: {a-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Spades}

The {3-Clubs} gave Abduljabbar two pair and the nut low but the {q-Spades} river made aces up for Galfond.

A few hands later, Marco Johnson raised to 120,000 early and was called by McKenna and Galfond, who was in the big blind. Galfond led for pot on {j-Spades}{6-Clubs}{9-Spades} and only McKenna continued. Galfond put the rest in on the {8-Clubs} turn.

"I have it," McKenna announced, snap-calling and showing {q-Spades}{10-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for the nuts.

Galfond had {k-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Clubs} but he got the {a-Clubs} on the river to make a low and chop.

Baker Agonizes Over His Decision

will_shill • Niveau 25: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

Chad Power raised to 120,000 and David "ODB" Baker called. Ali Abduljabbar then raised to 530,000. Power folded and Baker made the call.

The flop came {5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and Abduljabbar instantly moved all in for 735,000. Baker leaned back in his chair and put his hands behind his head. He asked for a count, and then separated the amount he needed to call with to see what he would be left with.

As the $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo players wandered back to their seats, both Frank Kassela and Matt Glantz shouted over their encouragement, oblivious to the big decision that Baker faced; elbows on the table, fingers in his ears.

"Just one more minute, guys," he said, and a short while later the clock was called on him. The seconds ticked down and eventually his hand was declared dead.
