Andrew Laikin

Stud 8

Andrew Laikin:  (XX) / 2s5s6s
Russell Clayton:  (XX) / Ah3h7d
Matthew Wolfson:  (XX)/ 6d3cJc

Andrew Laikin was the bring-in, Russell Clayton completed to 10,000, Matthew Wolfson called, and Laikin called.

Clayton bet with the on-board lead on fourth street, both opponents called, and Clayton bet 20,000 with the on-board lead again on fifth street. Wolfson thought for a bit before raising all in for 24,000, Laikin called all in for 13,000, and Clayton called to put both players at risk.

Andrew Laikin:  As5c  /  2s5s6s
Russell Clayton:  KdKc  /  Ah3h7d
Matthew Wolfson:  5h4s  /  6d3cJc

Laikin had a flush draw with a low draw, Clayton had a pair of kings and a backdoor low draw, while Wolfson had an open-ended straight draw and low draw.

Here were the rest of their runouts:

Andrew Laikin:  As5c  /  2s5s6sKh  /  2h
Russell Clayton:  KdKc  /  Ah3h7d10d  /  4d
Matthew Wolfson:  5h4s  /  6d3cJc7d  /  Jh

Clayton didn’t improve beyond his pair of kings, while Laikin’s strong draw only picked up a small two pair.

Wolfson made a seven-high straight and seven-six low on sixth street, besting both opponents to more than double up, while eliminating Laikin in ninth place.

Matthew Wolfson  –  140,000  (7 big bets)
Russell Clayton  –  33,000  (2 big bets)
Andrew Laikin  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($875)
