Thang Luu Crippled

The final board was {Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. O'Dell turned over {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{K-Spades} for a set of sixes and took the sizeable side pot, crippling Luu, while Corpuz survived by making the nut low and won the low half of the main pot.

Martin Corpuz Crippled

Holding {2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{Q-Spades} on a board of {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, Martin Corpuz thought his wheel was good, but Frankie O'Dell turned over {A-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{K-Clubs} for a six high straight for high and a wheel for low. O'Dell took the high and half the low, quartering Corpuz and crippling him down to less than 100,000 in chips.
