|Steve Husted - Card Player Poker Tour Event 3 Champion|
When we finally got done with the $100,000 GTD coverage, we approached the Omaha H/L 8B Final Table with Husted and Frank Williams III heads up for the trophy, with Husted holding a pretty decent chip advantage.
That advantage would become even greater after the first hand we saw at the Final Table, with Husted turning two pair and then rivering the "wheel" to scoop the whole pot, crippling Williams in the process.
Williams would say that the river card was the only card that wouldn't have resulted in a chop, a brutal beat that more or less cost him the Event 3 title.
Williams would end up all-in on the very next hand and actually had a decent low draw, only to see Husted flop a nutted full house and the board run out with no low, awarded the whole pot and the championship to Husted.
Husted's come close before to championship, Final Tabling three "mix" game events in his career, including two last year at the Borgata, but he's fallen short in each of those events, finally getting that breakthrough result here at Foxwoods.
Below is a complete list of those that cashed in Event 3:
- Steven Husted - $3,492
- Frank Williams III - $2,425
- Elaine Cyr - $1,552
- Danny Chang - $1,261
- Monty Dennis - $970
