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

Ma Doubles Yet Again

• Taso 26: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Tony Ma raised under the gun, and Stephen Chidwick, in the big blind, was the only taker.

The flop came {3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}, and Chidwick check-called. A {2-Spades} turn completed a low, and Chidwick check-raised this time. Ma reraised, and Chidwick put him all in for his last 15,000.

Ma: {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Chidwick: {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Hearts}

Ma had a low locked up, and he was ahead for high with the nut flush. The river was a {10-Spades}, leaving the board unpaired for Chidwick's set and securing yet another double for Ma.
