Stud Hi-Lo

Allen Kessler: {x-}{x-} / {2-Clubs}{7-Spades}{10-Hearts}{6-Spades} / {x-}
Phil Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} / {x-}
Kahle Burns: {x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} / {x-}

On fifth street, Phil Hellmuth was all in for 13,000 and Kahle Burns raised with a big bet to 29,000. Back on Allen Kessler, he called after some thought. A sizable crowd started gathering to see the 15-time bracelet winner being at risk.

Burns check-called bets from Kessler on sixth and seventh street before all hands went to showdown. Kessler was the first to reveal, slowly rolling over {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a pair of sixes and 8-7-6-5-2 low. Burns then tabled {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for aces and nines.

Hellmuth was last to act and turned over {4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} to make a 7-4-3-2-A low to claim half the pot.

"Needs a low to survive!" Daniel Negreanu cheerfully quipped, who was filming the whole showdown for his vlog.
