Sklar's Back in It

Level 23
Richard Sklar
Richard Sklar

Omaha 8

Richard Sklar came into today as the shortest stack but he's still alive and kicking after finding a full double up against Bill Chen. Sklar raised and Chen called from the big blind after which the flop brought {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

Chen check-called and on the turn the {J-Clubs} hit. Chen check-called again and on the river, the {3-Clubs}, Chen checked once more. Sklar moved all in and after some hesitation Chen called.

"No low," Sklar said, who showed {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}.

Chen pondered for a bit before showing {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Spades} and Sklar's hand was good enough to take down the entire pot. Sklar was very happy with this result and he also managed to take the next hand down to put him right back into things.
