Event 58: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Ben Busts One

Ben Yu has just eliminated a player close to the final break of the night and we were there to see how it went down. There was already a {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Spades}{j-Hearts} board showing when we caught the action from the turn. Yu was on the button and his opponent managed to get all his chips in the middle. This is how the player's cards looked.

Yu: {k-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{a-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{3-Hearts}

The {4-Spades} on the river was no help to Yu's opponent as Yu knocked him out of the park, adding plenty of chips to his stack late into the evening.

Greenstein Charging

Barry Greenstein has had a great summer so far and is looking to see that continue here in Event 58. Well, it's so far, so good for Greenstein as his stack is well above average.

Brenes Not Tight

Folded to Humberto Brenes in middle position, he raised the it up to 800. Only the small blind would call. Both players then checked down the {3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{9-Clubs} board. At showdown, Brenes tabled {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, which was enough to send his opponent's cards into the muck and the small pot to Brenes.

"Oh shit, your not tight!" said Ari Engel to Brenes as he showed the cards.

Brenes then said a few thing which we couldn't make sense of, but it sounded like he was suggesting the pair was the best hand he had seen. Engel then said, "Well, what have you been folding for the last hour if your playing that?"

Ivey No More

Phil Ivey is no longer involved in this tournament and we were there to catch the last moments of his night. When we arrived at the table there was already a {6-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Diamonds} flop out on the felt and Ivey was involved in the hand with one opponent.

Ivey led for 700 on the flop and his opponent raised the pot. Ivey then called all in for 3,300 and the two players turned their hands over.

Ivey: {10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{q-Hearts}{j-Spades}

The {j-Hearts} turn and the {4-Clubs} river were of no help to Ivey as he was sent packing.
