During the Stud Hi-Lo round, there were three players still in the hand on fourth street:

Adam Walter:  XxXx  6dQc
Adam Zeltser:  XxXx  3sKh
Dale Phillips:  XxXx  7dKd

Dale Phillips was all in for 15,000 on fourth street, up against Adam Zeltser and chipleader Adam Walter. Any further betting would create a side pot between Zeltser and Walter.

Adam Walter:  XxXx  6dQc4c
Adam Zeltser:  XxXx  3sKh4h
Dale Phillips:  XxXx  7dKd10h

On fifth street, Phillips had the visible lead with K-10 high, but since he was all in, the action was on Zeltser with his K-4 high. Zeltser checked, Walter bet 12,000, and Zeltser called, creating a side pot.

Adam Walter:  XxXx  6dQc4cJc
Adam Zeltser:  XxXx  3sKh4hKc
Dale Phillips:  XxXx  7dKd10h2d

Zeltser improved to a pair of kings on sixth street, while Walter picked up a third club and Phillips picked up a third diamond. Zeltser bet 12,000, and Walter folded. Zeltser took the side pot worth 24K.

The dealer dealt seventh street to Zeltser and Phillips, and they turned over their hands:

Adam Zeltser:  5d3h  3sKh4hKc  7s
Dale Phillips:  Ah6c  7dKd10h2d  6s

Neither player made a qualifying low, and Phillips rivered a pair of sixes. But it was much too little, much too late, and Zeltser won the pot with two pair, kings and threes, to eliminate Phillips in fourth place.

Adam Zeltser  –  275,000  (23 BB)
Dale Phillips  –  Eliminated in 4th Place  ($1,785)
