Something McEvoy's Never Seen

Prior to the last break, we heard a bunch of players conversing over at Table 438. Michael Noori informed us that a {5-Spades} was just the bring-in card seven handed, meaning six other players had better lows than that to start. As they were talking about it, the dealer dealt the next hand and the {6-Hearts} ended up being the bring-in.

If you thought the players were astonished before, you should have seen them after a five and six proved te bring-in in back-to-back hands. "You've been playing this game how long?" Noori asked 1983 World Series of Poker Main Event winner Tom McEvoy.

"A long time," McEvoy responded. "I have never seen it seven-handed back to back.

We waited around for the next hand just to see if it'd be three in a row, which would have no doubt threw the players into a frenzy. Unfortunately, a {Q-} ended up the bring-in and the excitement was over.
