Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Jeffrey Lisandro Gets the Scoop

MrCleverFox • Level 8: 600-1,200, 0 ante

With the board showing {Q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and more than 3,000 worth of bets in front of him, Jeffrey Lisandro faced off against one opponent. He casually flicked out a bet which his opponent called quickly. Lisandro showed {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for the nut flush and that was good to scoop the entire pot. Lisandro moves above the starting chip stack after taking down that pot.

Jason Mercier Runs Into the Nut Nut

MrCleverFox • Level 8: 600-1,200, 0 ante

On a board of {10-Clubs}{2-Spades}{K-Clubs}{6-Hearts} Jason Mercier moved all in for less than a bet. The other player in the hand called, bringing the three to a river.

On the {4-Clubs} river, the player first to act bet and the other player called.

"Let me guess, nut nut?" the caller asked. And he was correct as the bettor turned up {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} for the nut flush and the nut low. With that, Mercier hit the rail as the player raked in his chips.
