Shaun Deeb Eliminated in 5th Place ($232,058)

Shaun Deeb

Omaha Hi-Lo

Phil Hui raised from the cutoff and John Esposito called from the button. Shaun Deeb, who was on the short stack, was in the big blind and opted to call to see a {4-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop.

Two checks saw Esposito bet and Deeb call, leaving himself just 55,000 back. Hui got out of the way, the dealer burned and turned the {8-Spades}, and Deeb bet all in. Esposito quickly called.

Deeb: {10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades}
Esposito: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades}

Deeb held two pair for the high while Esposito had the better low and a lot of outs to scoop. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {3-Clubs} on the river. Esposito made a wheel for the low and a six-high straight to take the high.

With that, Deeb headed for the rail for a post-elimination interview with [Removed:139].
