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

Amaral Busts, Neilan Triples


Christopher Amaral started the day as one of the tournament short stacks, and consequently found himself all in on third street against three players.

Greg Mueller folded on fourth while Craig Neilan led the better on fourth and fifth street only to get raised by Vladimir Schmelev. Neilan called both times before check-raising on sixth all in.

Amaral: {10-Clubs}{6-Spades} / {6-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} / (X)
Neilan: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} / {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{K-Clubs} / (X)
Schmelev: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} / {9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{10-Spades} / (X)

"I'm drawing dead" commented Amaral at the sight of his opponent's down cards after seeing the fourth six - the {6-Hearts} - as one of his opponent's up cards before he folded.

Neilan revealed a {J-Diamonds} on seventh street and both Schemelev and Amaral folded their hands after not finding any improvement.

With Amaral hitting the rail, Neilan virtually tripled to over 51,000 in chips.
