Event #31: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low 8-or-Better

Gardenhire Gets Quartered

• Taso 11: 600-1,200, 0 ante

We didn't catch the exact preflop action, but we know that both Justin Gardenhire and his opponent, Richard Acovino both stuck about 9,000 in the middle before the flop, which ended up coming down {5-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. Gardenhire bet out 10,000, and Acovino quickly announced "12,400" moving all in. Gardenhire said "well I played this one badly" before tossing in the call.

Acovino: {4-Spades}{j-Clubs}{a-Spades}{2-Hearts}
Gardenhire: {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

Gardenhire was sharing the nut low draw, and was hoping to pair up to win 3/4 the pot. However, the board completed {k-Clubs} and {4-Clubs}, and Acovino's sevens and fours were good enough for the high, while the two players split the low.
