Event #21: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship

Steve Landfish Eliminated in 2nd Place ($204,924)

[user76023] • Level 28: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante
Steve Landfish

Landfish: {x-}{x-} / {3-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades} / {x-}
Grospellier: {x-}{x-} / {6-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{J-Spades} / {x-}

Bertrand Grospellier completed and then called the two bets when Steve Landfish raised. Landfish bet on the turn and was called before Grospellier raised on fifth street. Landfish put in three bets and Grospellier called that plus another bet on sixth street. Both players checked seventh and Landfish showed a massive missed draw holding of {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts} for just a pair of threes. Grospellier flipped {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for two pair and picked up the huge pot leaving Landfish with just about 300,000 remaining.

The rest of the chips went in as follows:

Landfish: {A-Spades}{4-Spades} / {3-Spades}{J-Spades}{4-Clubs}{10-Hearts} / {7-Diamonds}
Grospellier: {J-Clubs}{5-Clubs} / {9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{6-Spades}{6-Hearts} / {6-Diamonds}

Landfish started off ahead but then Grospellier made a pair of fives on fourth to go into the lead, Landfish continued to brick as Grospellier improved to two pair on sixth. Finally Landfish flipped his final card, it was the red {7-Diamonds} and offered Grospellier his hand. ElkY shook it and flipped the {6-Diamonds} to make an unneeded full house before going to celebrate with all the French supporters on his rail.

Landfish for his part takes home over $200,000 and memories of one of the most topsy-turvy heads up encounters we've seen at the WSOP this year.
