Event #21 of the 2010 WSOP was the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Event.  408 players turned out hoping to take down the last regular Stud of the WSOP and $140,467.


WSOP 2010 Event 21 winner Richard Ashby

Day 1 of this event started with an interesting mix of amateurs, pros, and stud specialists.  40 players finished in the money for this event.  The $10,000 Stud 8 bubble boy Alexander Dovzhenko finished in 39th.  Chip Jett finished in 33rd, Barbara Lewis in 27th, Scott Seiver in 19th and Alexander Kravchenko was the final table bubble boy, finishing in 9th.

The final table of this event was relatively stacked with Jon Turner, Pat Pezzin, Sorel Mizzi, Dan Heimiller, and Richard Ashby.  However, it was Christine Pietsch that was garnering a lot of attention.  She was the 3rd woman to make a final table of an open event at this WSOP and was looking to take her first bracelet.  Sorel Mizzi was the chip leader at the start of the final table.  Here is how the final eight started play:

Seat 1: Christine Pietsch - 194,000
Seat 2: Richard Ashby - 276,000
Seat 3: Pat Pezzin - 211,000
Seat 4: Dan Heimiller - 241,000
Seat 5: Jon Turner - 83,000
Seat 6: Sorel Mizzi - 435,000
Seat 7: Darren Shebell - 320,000
Seat 8: Owais Ahmed - 78,000

Mizzi would falter and finish in 6th place.  Christine Pietsch would excel and led for a good part of the final table.  Ultimately, she started heads-up play in the lead against Richard Ashby.  However, every big pot seemed to go Ashby's way.  He rivered two pair against a pair of kings, and then rivered trip deuces against kings-up for Pietsch.  The last hand of the event saw Pietsch all-in on fourth with king-high and three clubs.  Ashby made the call with buried queens.  Pietsch improved to a pair of tens on fifth and a broadway draw on sixth, but she never got any further.  Ashby caught queens-up on sixth street and that was good enough to take the hand and the bracelet.

After a strong showing from Christine Pietsch, Richard Ashby takes down the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event.  He won a place for his name in the WSOP bracelet winners list and $140,467 in prize money.
