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

All In Blind

[user75311] • Level 10: 400-800, 0 ante

While we were checking in on one of our chip leaders, Francesco "Cheech" Barbaro, we found a player who was all in blind. Picking it up on the river, the board was {7-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{8-Spades} and the current low hand was {2-}{4-} and the current high hand {A-}{A-} for Aces and eights.

The table encouraged the player to flip one card at a time and he obliged. A {J-} was the first card off and the table, who seemed to be rooting for the individual, jumped up a little in unison. The second card was a {6-} and the third a {10-}. Although he had no shot at the low now, he still had a few outs to take the high and stay alive. He slowly peeled the last card and it was an {8-} giving him a full house and the table celebrated with him.

The chips he won weren't even 3,000 but all you need is a chip and chair! Barbaro, who was one of the all in players biggest fans during the hand, has much more than just one chip. He has climbed all the way to 47,000 now.
