Omaha-8

Norman Chad returned from the dinner break with but 53,000, and after giving up the big and small blinds, was down to just 30,000.

Then came a hand in which chip leader Mark Gregorich raised from under the gun, and it folded to Chad. He checked his cards, then glanced at the few orange and pink chips he had left. Then one by one Chad set out a Visa credit card and his AAA card (see photo).

"This one has a $50,000 limit," he noted, pointing at the credit card. He then pushed his chips forward. "I'm betting these, plus another $15,800," he explained.

All laughed, the blinds folded, and the players tabled their cards. "I like your hand," Chad said as he saw Gregorich's {A-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Meanwhile Chad pulled back his Visa and AAA cards and tabled his {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades}.

The board ran out {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, giving Gregorich a flush and the nut low, and the crowd cheered as Chad shook hands with his opponents before departing in sixth. Not quite a "beyond fairy tale" finish for the commentator, but highly impressive nonetheless.

Stud-8

In the next-to-last hand before the dinner break, Norman Chad completed with the {8-Spades} showing, Danny Ratigan raised with the {6-Hearts}, and Chad called. Chad led with bets on the next three streets, with Ratigan calling each time. The pair then both checked on seventh.

Ratigan had {6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{J-Spades}{4-Spades} showing, and turned over {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for two pair, sevens and fours. Meanwhile, Chad's third through sixth had gone {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} for a pair of eights, and his down cards hadn't improved his hand.

Gregorich Looking Good at Present, Chad's Future in Doubt

Mark Gregorich completed with the {7-Clubs} showing, and Yuval Bronshtein called with the {9-Hearts} up. The action on Norman Chad, he checked his cards and looked down for a moment at the {4-Clubs} he had up, then at the small stack of 85,000 he had remaining.

Chad then fished a fortune cookie from his pocket, unwrapped it, and while chewing read the rectangular slip of paper to himself. With a wrinkled brow, he shared it with the table.

"Within the week you will receive an unexpected gift," he said, a note of incredulity in his voice. "That's kind of vague," he complained. "Mmm... good cookie, though," he added as he folded.

Bronshtein then check-called bets from Gregorich on the next two streets before both players checked down sixth and seventh.

Gregorich: {x-}{x-} / {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} / {x-}
Bronshtein: {x-}{x-} / {9-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{6-Spades} / {x-}
Chad: {x-}{x-} / {4-Clubs}, a crumpled piece of paper, and some crumbs

Gregorich tabled {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and his sevens were enough as Bronshtein mucked.
