Event #7: $1,500 Seven-Card Razz

Kataria Catches the River to Stay Alive

Chad_Holloway • Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 300 ante

Avinash Kataria was the short stack on the bubble, and he finally got his chips in against Phil Hellmuth when he bet his last 2,000 on fourth street.

Kataria: {a-}{q-} / {3-}{5-}{k-}{6-} / {4-}
Hellmuth: {2-}{3-} / {9-}{3-}{5-}{8-} / {7-}

Per custom, Hellmuth showed seventh street first and revealed an 8-7-5-3-2 low. That meant Kataria needed to hit, and he did as a {4-} gave him a winning 6-5-4-3-A low. Kataria was clearly excited and his stack was infused with new life.
