Event #63: $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship at the 2023 WSOP needed a fourth day of play. On that fourth day, six players returned. Ryan Miller was the chip leader, but Bryn Kenney wasn’t too far off.

Kenney quickly moved into the lead when he knocked out Eddie Blumenthal in sixth place. After that, it was Chino Rheem’s time to exit. He went out in fifth place and was also busted by Kenney.

Maximilian Schindler worked his way to the top of the leaderboard during four-handed play, but then Kenney maneuvered his way to the top spot entering a break in play. After the final four players returned, Andres Korn hit the rail, ultimately being done in by Miller.

Three-handed play started with Kenney and Schindler battlling for the chip lead while Miller sat in third place. But then Miller fought his way ahead of Schindler. Eventually, Schindler fell short and was knocked out by Kenney, who took more than a 2-to-1 chip lead into heads-up play against Miller.

Miller would work his way into the lead, but Kenney came right back. The two exchanged a couple of scooping blows before Kenney was able to open up a sizable lead. Miller was chopped down to just a few big bets when the players went on a 75-minute dinner break.

When they returned, it was all Miller. He doubled up and worked his way back into the contention. Miller soon found himself on top and then opened up a large lead of his own. Kenney wasn’t done yet and got himself back into the lead once more, but that didn’t last long. Miller stretched out a lead, left Kenney with one one or two big bets, and then sealed the deal. On the final hand, the money went in with Miller having ace-seven-nine-four against Kenney’s ace-queen-five-nine. Miller hit a pair of aces on fifth street and Kenney hit a pair of nines. Despite Kenney having outs to a flush, trips, or two pair, Miller’s pair of aces held and he was crowned the winner.
