Event #20: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better

Chidwick Doubles Through Ma

• Taso 25: 13,000-25,000, 0 ante

Tony Ma raised from early position, and action folded to Stephen Chidwick in the big blind, who made it three bets. Ma called.

Chidwick bet out most of the rest of his chips on the {6-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{7-Spades} flop, and Ma put him all in. Chidwick called.

Chidwick: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Ma: {a-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{5-Spades}

Ma had a wrap straight draw and a low draw, while Chidwick had aces and a weaker low draw that Ma had duplicated. The turn and river were {10-Clubs} and {k-Clubs}, bricking Ma's draw and doubling Chidwick up.

"How could I miss that?" Ma wondered as the dealer swept up his cards.
