Event 42: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better

To The Rail


Usually we mean that players left the building, or at least the tournament area. Well not in this case since both Noah Boeken and David Williams can be found on the rail at the ESPN Main Feature Table.

As we speak the heads up between Theo Tran and Dung Nguyen is going on in the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em, and both Williams and Boeken are good friends with Tran. Tran is trailing in the match, but he's already got $377,565 locked up. The winner of this event will eventually go home with a massive $607,200 first place prize. PokerNews is covering this match and all the live updates can be found right here.

And now the stories of Williams and Boeken. Williams was very outspoken and quick when we asked him if anything special happened, "No," was his answer. Boeken had a better story.

The Dutch pro told us how he only lasted for 30 minutes in this event, and he got both three- and one outered in this short time span. He told us one hand in which he had {A-}{5-}{6-}{J-} double suited on a {5-}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}{q-}{A-} board. One bet went into the pot on every street after which Boeken got raised on the river. His opponent had aces and beat his full house.

This World Series of Poker hasn't been kind for Boeken, who hasn't had the run he was hoping for so far.
