Barry Greenstein brought it in with a and then called a raise from Phil Hellmuth. The 11-time bracelet winner then fired every street through sixth, all of which Greenstein called, and then both players checked seventh.
Hellmuth: (x-x) / / (x) ()
Greenstein: (x-x) / / (x)

Three bets went in on third street, and on fourth street, Taylor led out. Only Hellmuth called. Hellmuth paired on fifth and called a bet from Taylor, but was forced to fold on sixth.
Taylor is now our chip leader, while Hellmuth is steaming a little bit.

Scott Fischman: / /
Don Zewin: / /
Zewin completed, and Fischman called. Zewin led out on fourth street, Fischman called, and both players knuckled on fifth. Zewin check-called bets on sixth and seventh, then announced, "seven perfect."
Fischman sighed, but when Zewin turned over , Barry Greenstein corrected him.
"That's not a seven perfect," he informed Zewin.
"Jesus," Fischman utttered, turning over for the same hand. "I almost mucked."
"Sorry," Zewin apologized. "You were always getting half of the pot, Scott."
"Not if I mucked," Fischman responded.
There was then an issue splitting the pot. There was an extra yellow T1,000 chip in the pot that couldn't be broken (the purple T500 chips were colored off) and no one knew who it should go to. In stud variants, even Razz, the extra chip goes to the player with the highest card (in Razz, aces are low). Half the table thought it should go to Fischman because he had a queen, which was the highest card dealt, but the other half thought it should go to Zewin because he had the , which was the highest card of the two five-card hands.
"Just put the chip on the rail," Greenstein suggested. "We'll treat it like a replay in the NBA and wait for a TV timeout."
Eventually, two tournament directors got together and ruled that the chip would go to Zewin, because it goes to the highest card from the five-card hands.

Michael Chow fired out a bet on the turn and was called by Phil Hellmuth, who was showing a pair of aces. Fifth street saw Chow fire out another bet, but this time Helluth quickly raised. "You can just say all in," Hellmuth told Chow, who only had 10,000 behind. While he didn't say it, Chow did commit it.
Chow: / /
Hellmuth: / /
Sixth street gave Hellmuth a nine-low, which meant Chow needed to improve on seventh. He squeezed out his card and didn't see any pips, meaning it was either a deuce, three or ace. "You've got two of the aces though," Chow said, knowing it was the only card that would save his tournament life. He then flipped and revealed a . With that, Hellmuth chipped up to 500,000 and sent Chow home in seventh place.

Brendan Taylor completed with a and then called a raise from Jeff Misteff. The latter bet the turn before calling a bet on fifth. Misteff's last 10,000 went in on sixth and the cards were tabled.
Misteff: (x) / / (x)
Taylor: / /
We didn't get a good look at Misteff's cards, but we do know he was drawing dead headed into seventh street. He finished in eighth place and parted with a $17,693 consolation prize.

Cantu completed, and Fischman called. Cantu led out on fourth street, Fischman called, and then Fischman led out on fifth. Cantu called. Cantu called another bet on sixth street, and Fischman checked on seventh. Cantu tanked before betting, and Fischman called.
Cantu fanned for an eighty-seven, and Fischman mucked.
"You probably don't get that call, Barry," Cantu said to Greenstein, who nodded. "But do you know how many millions I've spent to get that call?"
Greenstein and the rest of the tabled burst into laughter.
A few hands later, Fischman, Brendan Taylor, and Don Zewin were three-handed on fourth street.
Zewin led out, and both Fischman and Taylor called. On fifth, the action checked to Fischman who bet. Fischman check-called bets on sixth and seventh, and Zewin fanned .

Scott Fishman brought it in with a and Brandon Cantu completed. A short-stacked David Rosenau then raised all in for 14,000 total, which both Fischman and Cantu called. Fischman proceeded to check-call bets on the turn, fifth and sixth, and then bet when Cantu checked seventh. Cantu thought for a long time before he folded.
Fischman: (x-x) / / (x) ()
Rosenau: (x-x) / / (x) ()
Cantu: (x-x) / / (x)
