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

Perry Friedman Eliminated in 11th Place ($12,892)

Perry Friedman - 11th place


Down to just 25,000 to start the Omaha-8 round, Perry Friedman had to commit 15,000 of that as he was the big blind. Tim Burt then raised from the cutoff, George Danzer called from the small blind, and Perry pushed in his last 10,000.

The flop came {2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} and both players checked. The turn was the {3-Spades}. Danzer bet, and when Burt raised, that caused Friedman to raise as well — out of his seat. Danzer called.

The river brought the {J-Diamonds}, Danzer again bet, and Burt called.

Danzer showed {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for the ace-high flush and nut low. Burt had {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} for a lesser flush and also the nut low (to which Danzer had caught up on the turn). Meanwhile Friedman had but {J-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}.

Three-quarters of the pot thus went to Danzer, the rest to Burt, and Friedman shook hands with his opponents and left with an 11th-place ticket.
