Event 24: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Miracle Double Up For Ivey


From the button, Joe Cassidy just raised it up to 200,000, after which Phil Ivey made it 250,000 from the small blind. Cassidy called and the flop came down {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{3-Spades}. Ivey was all in for his final 60,000 chips and Cassidy called.

"I got a very big hand," Cassidy said as we went to showdown.

Cassidy showed {Q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and Ivey was looking to hold with his {A-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades}.

The turn was the {10-Clubs}, and the river the {10-Diamonds} giving Ivey a full house. Cassidy missed a lot of outs, and Ivey lives to fight another day.
