We are back at the WSOP and for the first time in the series the dealers will be dealing sixth and seventh streets instead of flops, turns, and rivers as we are getting ready to start up Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud.
Last year, Richard Ashby outlasted the 408 person field and pocketed $140,467 for his efforts. Ashby survived a brutal final table that included Dan Heimiller, Sorel Mizzi, Pat Pezzin, and Jon Turner.
So far this year every event has seen more entries then last year's, and we will see if the trend continues today in the first stud event of the series. Stay posted to PokerNews as we will run down a list of all the notable faces we see shortly, and enjoy the action!
