During a round of Stud Hi-Lo, Nick Zivolich and Gary Kosakowski played a hand all the way to seventh street.

Nick Zivolich:  (XxXx)  2sJs8c2h  (Xx)
Gary Kosakowski:  (XxXx)  7d6cKc9d  (Xx)

7th Street:  Zivolich checked his pair of deuces, Kosakowski moved all in for about 31,000, and Zivolich called.

Nick Zivolich:  (4s4d)  2sJs8c2h  (Qs)
Gary Kosakowski:  (KdQd)  7d6cKc9d  (Ks)

Neither player made a qualifying low hand, and Zivolich showed two pair, fours and deuces. But Kosakowski turned over trip kings, saying he caught the third one on the river. Kosakowski doubled up into nearly a tie for the chip lead.

Gary Kosakowski  –  325,000  (8 BB)
Nick Zivolich  –  335,000  (8 BB)

With six players remaining, the average chip stack is around 250,000 (6 Big Bets), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $2,385 each.
