Event 8: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Hellmuth Wins One Quietly

Phil Hellmuth is back up to 31,000 after chopping a three-way pot.

We caught up with action on the turn where the board read {7-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}. The action was checked to Hellmuth on the button and his 3,000 bet was called by both players.

It was the same deal on the {5-Hearts} river and the players made their claim for the pot.

Hellmuth: {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{q-Clubs} for the high.
Lady in mid position: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for the low.
The player in the hijack stared at his cards for a while and then mucked.
