19 players started Day 3 of WSOP Event #15 $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better, with Adam Friedman in the lead with 323,500 in chips. Event #10 $5,000 Seven Card Stud winner John Monnette was slightly behind with 314,500. A total of 212 players started Day 1 of the event for a prize pool of a handsome $996,400.
The stars who made it to the final day included Eli Elezra, Phily Ivey and Phil Hellmuth, not to mention poker legend Doyle Brunson’s son Todd. The three tables melted down to the final one with the elimination of Eli Elezra, Marco Johnson, Allen Bari, Tuan Vo, Phil Hellmuth, Ben Yu, Nicholas Verkaik, Christopher George, Alexander Krapivinsky and Jesse Martin.

First out from the final nine was Brian Twete, followed by Bryn Kenney. Ivey finished in 7th place when his check-raise all-in was called by Brunson whose hand developed into a wheel on the 7th street against Ivey’s pair of 7s. Brunson then eliminated Zimnan Ziyard in a similar fashion, before Sven Arntzen and Nikolai Yakovenko were also sent to the rail.

On Level 27 (10,000/40,000/80,000), the heads-up was set: Friedman’s three of 4s busted Monnette’s hand.

Todd Brunson: 2,180,000
Adam Friedman: 1,000,000


In a good three hours long play, Friedman managed to come back several times, just to see Brunson re-establishing his lead. That is, until the very end of Level 29 (15,000/60,000/120,000), when Friedman turned a roughly even layout into a major lead in a mere two hands. This ultimately led to the final hand, when Brunson check-called Friedman’s bet on the 4th street, and then shoved on the 5th.

Brunson’s split tens failed to improve, giving the victory to Friedman in his first live tournament since March, 2009 – and also his first WSOP bracelet ever.
