Brown Wins Monster Pot to Cripple Tryba


Brown: {X-}{X-} / {3-Spades}{A-Clubs}{5-Spades}{6-Clubs} / {X-}
Hennigan: {X-}{X-} / {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} FOLDED
Tryba: {X-}{X-} / {5-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{A-Hearts} / {X-}
Tang: {X-}{X-} / {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{10-}{Q-Spades} / {X-} FOLDED

Chad Brown brought in, John Hennigan completed, and Chris Tryba, Kevin Tang and Brown all made the call. All four players checked on fourth and Tryba bet when he made the highest pair showing on fifth. Tang and Brown called while Hennigan got out of the way and the action was the same on sixth. On seventh, it was checked to Brown who bet and Tryba slammed the table before he made the call. Tang folded and Brown showed {2-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for a flush as Tryba frustratingly mucked. Tryba was extremely short with barely more than one big bet left while we couldn’t get a count on Brown as he was stacking his chips but we will get that for you shortly.

Welcome to Day 3 of Event #21: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship!

Steve Landfish
Steve Landfish

Welcome, my friends, to the show that never ends.

Fourteen players remain going into the final day of this event, and relative unknown (at least compared to most of the remaining field) Steve Landfish is the big chip leader. Landfish previously finished 16th in this event back in 2009 and will be hoping to improve even more than two places on that result.

John Hennigan is in second place, way ahead of Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier in third, while names such as Chad Brown, Jason Mercier, Alexander Kostritsyn, Sorel Mizzi and last year's champion Men Nguyen all still remain with a shot.

Play will begin at 3pm with the final table moving to the feature table in the "thunderdome" area of the Amazon room.
