Event #3: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better

Wax On, Wax Off


Four players saw a flop of {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Matthew Waxman was the first to check. Dave Stann followed suit but his nemesis Men Nguyen threw out a bet. Miguel Proulx made the call as did the other players. The {2-Spades} turn got checked around but action heated up when the {2-Diamonds} hit the river. It was checked to Nguyen who chose to bet and got called by Proulx. Waxman came in with a check raise which got Stann out of the way. Nguyen fired back with a three bet that got Proulx to fold but Waxman made the call.

Waxman: {8-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Nguyen: {J-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}

Waxman’s full house and low were good to scoop as Nguyen lost some of the chips that he had just won before.
