Kabbaj One Card Away From Scoop Or Brick

Stud Hi-Low

John Kabbaj started with the {4-Clubs} showing and Thomas Keller had the {8-Hearts} before both increased their respective draw tendency with the {3-Clubs} and the {9-Hearts}. Kabbaj kept betting on fifth before they checked the sixth, the Brit bet seventh again.

Kabbaj: {2-Spades}{5-Diamonds} / {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{K-Hearts} / {7-Diamonds}
Keller: {8-Clubs}{9-Clubs} / {8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{J-Clubs} / {K-Clubs}

Ultimately, Keller's two pair won the hi pot and Kabbaj almost bricked to secure the low on the very last card. That same card could have also given him the wheel or straight for an even bigger lead.
