Two Scoops for George

[user38338] • Taso 23


Five of the six Omaha-8 hands this round saw action all of the way to the river, with Christopher George scooping a couple of hands.

In one George raised the button then called a Brandon Wong three-bet from the small blind, then called Wong bets after both the {9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop and {3-Spades} turn. Both checked the {A-Spades} river, and when George showed {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a high of aces and treys and no low, Wong mucked.

Another hand saw George and Wong checking down to the river as the board rolled out {J-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}, then George betting and Wong calling on the end. George showed {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades} for a straight, and Wong mucked again.

The other highlight of the round was a blind-vs.-blind hand between Sebastian Saffari and Philip Sternheimer. After Saffari limped in from the SB and Sternhemier checked, Saffari then led at every street as the board came {5-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, then {J-Spades}, then {6-Clubs}, and Sternheimer called each time.

Saffari: {J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Sternheimer: {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

Saffari had the high locked up with his seven-high straight, and the pair split the low as both had made a 6-5-4-3-A.
