Ryan Hughes has won Event 20, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Eight or Better with a run of unthinkable cards.
Heads up lasted mere minutes with Hughes taking control on a hand where Min Lee put most of his chips in on fifth street holding 8♣ 8♥ 2♦ against Hughes' 9♦ K♣ 6♠. When Ryan hit the 9♠ on sixth and bet out, Lee folded, leaving him crippled.
Two hands later, Min was all in holding just J♦ 8♦ on fourth street.
Ryan held the J♥ 10♥ at the time, but finished up 5♥ 10♣ 10♦ 10♠ 6♠ for quads.
The 6♦ 4♥ 3♥ 4♦ 4♣ gave Lee trips, but that clearly wasn't any match for the steamroll job Hughes put on this final table in the last hour.
He's the champ and he'll cash $176,358 for the win. Lee goes home $97.461 richer.
