Rikard Aberg has been in poker media for a very long time, and this event is his chance at world-wide poker glory. Aberg managed to survive Day 1 with 16,800 chips, and after a few orbits he managed to chip up just a little. We caught two hands he was involved in during Omaha-8.
Joe Keuther raised it up, Aberg called from the small blind and Raymond Davis three-bet from the big blind. Both Keuther and Aberg called giving of three-way action on the flop.

Keuther turned over for the nut low, Aberg showed for a full house and Davis tabled his . We missed the suit of Davis' ace, but his hand was no good. The pot was split between Aberg and Keuther, and Davis was left very unhappy.
"Make sure you write that down correctly, he just called three-bets pre flop with queen-queen-six-deuce," Davis said.
"I don't know what I'm doing," Aberg said smiling sarcastically.
"I figured that's how you got your chips," Davis added, who wasn't happy with the way this hand played out.
On the very next hand Rep Porter raised, Aberg called on the button and Hasan Habib moved all in from the big blind. Porter and Aberg both called.
The flop came down , Porter bet and Aberg called. The turn was the and Porter bet, Aberg called. On the river the hit and Porter bet again. Aberg didn't seem too happy but called. Porter showed and took down the whole pot, Habib mucked and went straight to the $25,000 One Drop satellite.
