Three Hundred and Forty players entered the $2,000 buy in, three day Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Event  at the World Series of Poker 2007. The prize pool of $618,000 was shared between the top 32 finishers with top prize set at $176,358. The first two days play would narrow the field to the final eight players to play out the final table on the third day.

Greg Raymer was most peoples favourite to take down this event, sitting in third place in the chip rankings leader board on $215,000 in chips, not too far behind Steve Grabowski in the lead on $373,000. Adam Spiegelberg and Jim Weir were the men under pressure on the short stacks, with both of them having less than $50,000 in front of them.

Final Table Chip Rankings:

  • 1st Steve Grabowski $373,000
  • 2nd Ryan Hughes $341,000
  • 3rd Greg Raymer $215,000
  • 4th Ron Ware $167,000
  • 5th Doug Carli $97,000
  • 6th Min Lee $66,000
  • 7th Jim Weir $46,000
  • 8th Adam Spiegelberg $36,000

It was Adam Spiegelberg on the short stack who was first to leave, moving All In with his last $10,000 with an :ah showing. He was called by both Steve Grabowski and Ryan Hughes who checked all the way down to the final card. Grabowski took the pot winning with the five high straight eliminating Spiegelberg in 8th place winning $13,923.

Then Greg Raymer proceeded to eliminate two players in a row within the space of three hands. First he sent Ron Ware to the rail knocking him out in 7th place. Jim Weir was his next victim on the short stack pushing All In to which Raymer called.

Weir’s cards = :3s :as :8s :5c :js :9h :qh

Raymers cards = :10h :kh :5h :ah :4s :kd :10c

Raymers two pair was good to take the pot against Weir missing his flush draw and missing his low hand at the same time.

Greg Raymer gained his hatrick in knock out hands, when winning a three way pot against Ryan Hughes and Steve Grabowski who was All In. Raymer hitting trip sevens forcing Hughes to fold on the 6th street, leaving him to win the pot against Grabowski looking for the flush which never came. Grabowski took home $32,178 for his 5th place finish.

This run of wins for Raymer came to an abrupt end going out of the tournament in 4th place. He lost around five pots almost in a row against every player at the table before finally being eliminated by Ryan Hughes, who was no looking good to take down this tournament.

Hughes continued his good run taking out Doug Carli on the next hand, hitting a full house on the 7th street against Carli’s two pair, Carli won $61,880 in 3rd place.

Hughes held the chip lead at the start of heads up play with his $1million in chips against John Pham on $360,000. He made this advantage tell taking the win in only twelve hands. The final hand came when Hughes hit quad Tens giving Pham no chance of a come back having trip fours. A fitting hand to take down your very first WSOP tournament winning $176,358.
