[user38873] • Nivo 8

Omaha Hi-Lo

Heads-up to the {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop, Mark Gregorich bet and Nick Guagenti raised. Gregorich then made it three bets and Guagenti tossed in calling chips. Gregorich instantly bet the {4-Diamonds} turn and the fold by Guagenti followed.

The table now also features Mark Benson, who entered recently and lost a big portion of his stack almost immediately.

Kruse Survives Thanks to Final Draw

• Nivo 8


Facing two potential executioners on the final draw, Max Kruse drew one card against Ben Diebold and Jean-Robert Bellande.

Kruse said he had to break a king badugi on the final draw, and was packed and ready to go, but as he put his final hand together then turned it over, he showed {6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}{a-Diamonds}, pulling the {5-Hearts} on the end to win the pot and survive.

Brown Doesn't Call the Shove by Schwartz

[user38873] • Nivo 8

Pot-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

On the tail end of a bigger confrontation between Jake Schwartz and Andrew Brown, there were nearly 70,000 in the middle. Schwartz jammed for 42,400 and Brown went deep into the tank. He talked to himself and his opponent, essentially declaring he was trying to talk himself out of a call.

Indeed, the fold followed and more table chat by Brown followed. "I folded the worst eight-six in the deck. I don't believe him, the body language says he didn't have it," Brown added.

Mueller Doubles Up through Claasen

• Nivo 7

Big O

Greg Mueller was all-in for his tournament life on the {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{q-Hearts} flop in a recent hand of Big O.

Greg Mueller: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}
Christopher Claassen: {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades}{2-Spades}

Mueller needed help to stay alive and he got it, in two perfect cards as the {4-Hearts} and {2-Hearts} rolled off, giving him the nut flush for high and a wheel for low to boost his stack back near its starting point.

Michael Moncek: {x-}{x-} / {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Spades} / {x-}
Jason Su: {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{9-Clubs} / {x-}
Eli Elezra: {x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{k-Clubs} / {x-}

A large three-way pot emerged in which Eli Elezra bet sixth street to get called by Michael Moncek and Jason Su. Elezra checked seventh and Moncek bet for almost his entire remaining short stack. Su called and Elezra also called as well.

Moncek revealed two pair and a missed low draw while Su had aces up. However, it was Elezra who dragged in the large pot with {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for a set of kings. Moncek had fumes left, chopped the next hand to double before he was knocked out right after that.

Elezra then thanked newly arrived Ryan Miller for picking this particular game. "You are welcome, I gotta help you out," Miller replied.

Schwartz Bets Out Matusow

[user38873] • Nivo 7

Stud Hi-Lo

Mike Matusow: {x-}{x-} / {7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs} / {x-}
Jake Schwartz: {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{k-Spades} / {x-}

Mike Matusow and Jake Schwartz tangled in multi street action in which Matusow had a low draw and straight draw. However, he folded to a bet by Jake Schwartz, who had improved to a pair of kings and two flush draws.

That loss put a small dent into Matusow's stack, as Schwartz leaped back above the starting stack.
