Event 24: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Brown Chops and Profits


Chad Brown and Frank Russomanno just chopped a pot which gave both players a small profit. There were a total of five players involved in the hand and at showdown there were still three left.

Five players saw a {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}{7-Hearts} flop and both blinds checked after which Brown bet 1,000 and he got two callers. Russomanno was in the big blind and checked again when the {6-Hearts} hit the turn. Brown bet 2,000, the player to his left called and now Russomanno put in the check-raise. Both his opponents called.

The river was the {3-Spades} and Russomanno bet 2,00 and both Brown and the other player called. Russomanno showed {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades}{q-Hearts} and locked up the low part of the pot. Brown showed {A-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades} for a full house and took down the high. The player caught in the middle turned over {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and his cards were mucked.

Brown already has a cash at this years WSOP finishing 33rd in the $1,500 Omaha hi/lo event. In his long career Brown has managed to make nine WSOP final tables, but so far his wrists lack one of those prestiges gold bracelets. He has three second place and two third place finishes and he will be fighting to make another deep run in today's event.
