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

Back in it!


He's still the shortest, but after doubling up twice he's right back in the game. On the first all in he got his 95,000 chips all in pre flop and Scotty Nguyen called.

Scotty Nguyen{A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Phil Ivey{J-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

The board ran out {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} giving Ivey an epic double up and another chance to fight. Just a few hands later he was all in again.

Joe Cassidy raised from the button and both blinds called. The flop came down {8-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Ivey lead out. Nguyen folded and Cassidy put him all in. Ivey called and showed {8-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Cassidy turned over {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{4-Spades}, and after the {7-Diamonds} turn and {9-Clubs} river Ivey was back up 500,000 chips.
