Another poker speciality event has come to an end at the World Series of Poker, this time event #30, $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low. A total of 588 players entered in the tournament in the hopes of becoming the winner, but in the end it was Calvin Anderson who could call himself victorious.
After three days of playing, the final day had a total of 12 players starting. After four players busted out, we started the official final table with the eight remaining players and with Anderson in a good position, having 4th most chips. The final table included names such as Jimmy Fricke and Joe Tehan, so it was not a rookie table.
The final hand of the day came after many hours of play on the final day, where Joe Tehan and Calvin Anderson are heads up for the title. Tehan was at this point very short stacked after being run over by Anderson and already in the first round of betting he is all-in, making the rest of the hand easy for the dealer.
And that was the end of the tournament for Tehan who finishes in second place for $118,014, while Anderson won his first WSOP bracelet and $190,538. The young superstar played amazingly throughout the entire tournament and controlled the final table quite well. The rest of the final table payouts can be found below:
