Stud Hi-Lo

Phil Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{9-Clubs} / {x-}
Espen Sandvik: {x-}{x-} / {7-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{a-Spades} / {x-}

Ville Haavisto was the bring-in with the {2-Spades}. Phil Hellmuth completed, Espen Sandvik made it two bets, Haavisto folded, and Hellmuth called. Sandvik check-called fourth street before leading out on the remaining streets. Hellmuth raised the river all in and Sandvik called.

Hellmuth showed {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, Sandvik tabled {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and the two chopped it up.

Under the watchful eye of a densely-packed crowd, due to the Mini Main being on break, the pair then tangled in another Stud Hi-Lo hand. This time, Sandvik brought it in, Hellmuth completed and bet all the way, with Sandvik calling him down.

Phil Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades} / {x-}
Espen Sandvik: {x-}{x-} / {5-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} / {x-}

Hellmuth rolled over {q-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a pair of sevens and seventy-six low, but Sandvik once again took half after revealing {8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} for a better low. The Poker Brat jolted from his seat and created a lively show for the many onlookers before sitting down again.
