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

Barbaro Storms Into Lead


Francesco Barbaro looks to be the new chip leader with over 200,000. He just added even more to his stack betting 8,000 on the turn of a {4-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} board against Guillaume Rivet before both checked the {10-Diamonds} river. Barbaro turned over {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds} for nines and fives and Rivet could only muck. The French-Canadian former chip leader is down to about 63,000 now.
