Event #47 -- Seven Card Stud Hi-Low-8 or Better Final Table

Notes from the WSOP on this event:

Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split is a game in which the highest and lowest hands split the pot equally. However, the lowest hand must first qualify to be eligible for half the pot. The qualifying low hand must be an "eight-low" or better. For this reason, the game is sometimes called Seven-Card Stud Eight-or-Better.

The 2008 $1,500 buy-in Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split champion is Ryan Hughes. He is a 27-year-old poker pro. Hughes won his second WSOP gold bracelet. He won the $2,000 buy-in Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split championship in 2007. Hughes won $183,341 for first place. As play was winding down at the final table, there was a strange delivery which arrived in a white paper sack. Hughes' mother, who lives in Florida, ordered the delivery of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to her son at tableside. Hughes' mother included a greeting card wishing him well and noted that she wanted to send him something that he always enjoyed as a youngster. The sandwich was even sliced diagonally, just the way Hughes liked it.

Day Two ran longer than expected, so Day Three resumed with 13 players instead of eight. After two more hours of play on Day Three, the final table began at 4 pm and ended at 10 pm, which totaled about six hours of play.

  1. Ryan Hughes $183,368
  2. Ron Long $113,240
  3. Thomas Hunt III $68,686
  4. Alessio Isaia $50,122
  5. Jonas Klausen $39,355
  6. Tim D'Alessandro $30,444
  7. Joshua Feldman $23,019
  8. David Sklansky $19,306
  9. James Richburg $15,593
