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

Tapscott Dropping Fast


Gavin Griffin raised to 100,000 and Herbert Tapscott made the call. The flop brought {10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and both players checked. The turn was the {10-Clubs} and Tapscott check-called 100,000. The river was the {A-Clubs} and Tapscott check-folded to another 100,000 chip bet.

A couple of hands later Hua raised from the button to 100,000 and Tapscott called from the button. The flop brought out {2-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{K-Hearts} and Hua bet 50,000 after which Tapscott put him all in for 65,000 chips total. Hua called and showed {Q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for a flopped flush and Tapscott was drawing very thin with his {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}. "Runner runner," Tapscott announced but the turn, the {10-Clubs}, and river, {K-Diamonds}, didn't help him out. Hua is back in the race while Tapscott dropped a lot of chips.
