Three More Hands

HillKerby • Level 10: 1,500-3,000, 300 ante

With 10 minutes remaining in the level, the tournament director has announced that play will continue for three more hands before the field will bag their chips and play will conclude for the night.

Oshiro Wins a Big One

HillKerby • Level 10: 1,500-3,000, 300 ante

Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Michael Noori raised from early position and received calls from Kirk Oshiro in middle position, a player on the cutoff, Brandon Shack-Harris on the button, and Phil Ivey in the small blind.

The five players saw a flop of {j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and Ivey checked to Noori, who bet. All four players called and the turn came {k-Hearts}. Action then checked to the cutoff, who bet. Shack-Harris raised and Ivey folded. Noori, the cutoff, and Oshiro all called, leaving four in the pot.

The river was {10-Hearts} and Noori checked. Oshiro bet, the cutoff folded, and Shack-Harris called. Noori folded behind and it was a heads-up showdown.

Oshiro tabled {9-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{q-Hearts} for Broadway and Shack-Harris flashed the {q-Spades} before mucking his hand.

Chris Ferguson
Chris Ferguson

Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Chris Ferguson is another face that has been seen in the tournament since the final break and end of the registration period. He had apparently chipped up prior to playing the following hand with Marco Johnson:

Marco Johnson: {x-}{x-} / {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades}{10-Spades} / {x-}
Chris Ferguson: {x-}{x-} / {5-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{j-Spades} / {x-} (folded on seventh)
Max Pescatori: {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{x-} (folded on fourth)

Johnson bet on fourth and Max Pescatori folded. Ferguson called. Johnson bet every remaining street and Ferguson called him down until seventh street, when he looked at his final card, folded his hand, and gently pushed the chips in front of him from over to Johnson, on his direct left.
