Cory Zeidman Wins World Series of Poker$1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Eight-or-Better
Two-Time Bracelet Winner Swede Chris Bjorn Defeated in $1,500 Event
Cory Zeidman has won event no.4 at the 2012 World Series of Poker, the $1,500 buy in seven-card stud high-low eight or better, defeating two-time bracelet winner from Sweden, Chris Bjorin.
Other notable bustouts in the latter stages of the game, which ran until after midnight, included Linda Johnson (13th), Jerrod Ankenman (16th), Jimmy Fricke (19th) Robert Mizrachi (31st) Dan Shak (37th) and Bryan Devonshire (48th).
Zeidman started the final table as chip leader along with notable names Todd Brunson, Xian Liu and Michael Mizrachi. Liu knocked out Brunson and was, in turn, knocked out by Mizrachi.
Mizrachi hit the rail at the hands of Chris Bjorin and by the time Bjorin and Zeidman got to heads up the latter had a 3:1 chip advantage.
It was Zeidman’s second year at the final table of this event and despite starting last year’s final table as chip leader was able to seal the deal this time around despite the ultra-consistent Bjorin getting level in chips at one point during their heads up duel.
However Zeidman pulled way out in front after winning a nearly 1.5 million pot with a flush that went to a showdown.With neither player showing a pair and each showing two spades on board, Zeidman rivered a flush, leaving Bjorn with less than one big bet after he opted to call three bets with 100,00 behind rather than jam his last bet into the pot.
Down to his last bet, Chris Bjorn was all in on third street with J-high against Cory Zeidman’s wired pair of kings.
Zeidman: 8 4 2 7 — K K
Bjorn: J 10 4 7 — Q 8
Bjorn was all in and drawing very slim against Zeidman on the final hand of the night and despite picking up a few draws on fifth street, Chris Bjorn failed to improve by the river and was eliminated in 2nd Place ($124,838). Cory Zeidman won event no. 4, the $201,559 grand prize and the fourth gold bracelet of the 2012 WSOP.
