Level 18

Day 2 of Event 42: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better began with 175 of the original 393 entrants. Only 40 of them would make the money, and after ten hours of play, 22 remain.

Jeffrey Lisandro is the leader with 355,000 chips, and following him in the counts are Perry Friedman (263,000), Norman Chad (224,500), George Danzer (219,500), and Yuval Bronshtein (212,500).

Lisandro shot up the charts towards the end of the night, and won a massive pot during the last level of play. He scooped a Stud hand against Allen Bari and Daniel Harmetz, where Lisandro made a flush on seventh. He also made a seventy-six low, forcing Harmetz to muck despite his board reading {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

“I don’t see bad hands!” Lisandro shouted at one point.

Lisandro is searching for his sixth career bracelet, and his fifth in a stud game.

There were a handful of notables who were unable to reach the money, including Alan Boston, Barry Greenstein, Vladimir Shchmelev, Julie Schneider, Amnon Filippi, Jim Geary, Daniel Negreanu, and the eventual bubble boy Christopher Gentile.

Play will resume at 2 p.m. local time tomorrow, and the plan is to play until there’s a winner. We’ll see you then, good night from Las Vegas!

Lisandro Scoops Big Pot, Crosses 300K


Allen Bari{x-}{x-} / {3-Spades}{2-Spades}{j-Diamonds} (FOLDED)
Daniel Harmetz{x-}{x-} / {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{a-Clubs}{3-Hearts} / {x-}
Jeff Lisandro{x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} / {x-}

We caught the action on fourth street, where all three players checked. On fifth, Harmetz made a pair of aces, and bet. Only Lisandro called.

Harmetz bet again on sixth, and this time Lisandro raised. Harmetz called. Harmetz slowed down, check-calling a bet from Lisandro, and Lisnadro tabled {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a king-high flush and a seventy-six low.

Harmetz mucked, and Lisandro scooped the pot.

Bari Doubles


Allen Bari{x-}{x-} / {3-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{a-Hearts}{5-Spades} / {x-}
Timothy Frazin{x-}{x-} / {q-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{7-Spades} / {x-}

Bari was all in on third street, and opened up {8-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. Frazin was ahead with {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} for split queens, but didn't improve through sixth street. Frazin turned over the {8-Clubs} on seventh, which also didn't improve his hand, and Bari, who made a pair of fives on sixth, had plenty of outs to scoop.

Bari's downcard was the {a-Spades} for aces up, and he indeed scooped the pot to double to 32,000.
