Event #61: $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship

Cernuto's Flush Takes It All

• Nivo 5: 600-1,200, 100 ante

We caught the action on fifth street with a lot of chips spread out across the table. The action was on Nikolay Losev, who had 2,400 out in front of him, with the initial bet being 1,200. The player to his left had 2,400 out in front as well, while Roland Israelashvili and John Cernuto had 3,600 invested.

"Raise," Losev finally announced, and the fourth player folded. Israelashvili capped it for 6,000 and Cernuto tanked for a minute before calling as well.

On sixth street Losev bet and both Israelasvhili and Cernuto called. Seventh was dealt face down and Losev bet again, both Israelashvili and Cernuto called.

Opponent: {X-}{X-} / {8-Clubs}{9-Spades}{K-Clubs} --fold
Israelashvili: {X-}{X-} / {10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades}{A-Clubs} / {X-}
Cernuto: {X-}{X-} / {6-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} / {X-}
Losev: {X-}{X-} / {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts} / {X-}

After the bet was called Losev showed {4-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{K-Hearts} for three of a kind. Israelashvili tabled {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a better three of a kind and to Cernuto's shock his flush was good. Cernuto shows his five diamonds and raked in this huge pot.
