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

Mascio Doubles Through Hua


Can Kim Hua is still one of the biggest stacks in the room after he just doubled up Greg Mascio. We caught the action with the board showing {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Hua had put out a 8,000 chip bet. Mascio raised it up to 16,000 with just 4,000 behind and Hua called.

The river was the {K-Hearts} and Hua check-called the last 4,000 to bring us to showdown. Mascio turned over his {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} for the nut low and a flush while Hua flashed his {A-Clubs}{A-Spades} before sending them into the muck. Mascio was up to 72,500 after that hand but in the very next hand he doubled up a short stack costing him 9,500 chips.

Can Kim Hua 190,000 30,000
Greg Mascio 62,000 39,800
