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

Two For Cassidy


Meng La was first to act, and made it two bets. Joe Cassidy called on the button, and Scotty Nguyen defended his big blind. The dealer fanned {k-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}, and Nguyen checked. La continued, Cassidy raised, and both Nguyen and La released.

A few hands later, Cassidy raised out of the small blind, and his neighbor Phil Ivey called. The flop was {q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, and Cassidy check-called a bet. The {9-Hearts} turned, and Cassidy checked again. Ivey bet, and this time, Cassidy check-raised. Ivey called.

The {8-Hearts} completed the board, and Cassidy led out for the first time. Ivey called, then mucked when Cassidy tabled {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{4-Hearts}.

Phil Ivey us 1,550,000 -275,000
