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

Heard Around the Room

Besides "split pot," which is something we'll be hearing a lot over the next three days, here are a few interesting things we've heard over the last level.

"I can hear that from over here," Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier quipped at Paul Volpe. By the looks of it, Mercier, Volpe, and possibly Eli Elezra, were playing a game of Chinese poker on their iPads and iPhones. Volpe couldn't turn the sound down on his phone, and it was annoying Mercier, who could apparently hear it even though he has a pair of Bose Headphones on.

At another table, a dealer was struggling with a broken chair, when David Steicke, who won the 2009 $100,000 Challenge at Aussie Millions, offered an empty chair at the table.

"Oh no," the dealer declined. "They'll yell at me for that."

Steicke tried to call a floor person to the table to rectify the situation, but unfortunately there was nothing they could do.

PokerStars Team Online Member George Lind III has the line of the day thus far. After a hand in which Josh Arieh was quartered, he offered some sage-like advice: "Hey, if you get quartered in every pot for the rest of the tournament, you won't get eliminated."

The entire table erupted in laughter, even Arieh who took a big hit to his stack.
