During a round of Omaha-8, Selim Oulmekki (button) and Jeffrey Cookson (big blind) put in about 60,000 each preflop.

The flop came 8s7s6h, Cookson bet his last 6,000, and Oulmekki called.

Jeffrey Cookson:  KhQhQd10c  (pair of queens, no low draws)
Selim Oulmekki:  As10d2s2h  (pair of deuces, 8-7 low)

Oulmekki was guaranteed at least half of the pot with a made low hand, and Cookson needed his pair of queens to hold up to stay alive.

The turn card was the 9c, and the river card was the Ah — Oulmekki rivered two pair to scoop the pot, eliminating Cookson in sixth place.

Selim Oulmekki  –  450,000  (19 BB)
Jeffrey Cookson  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($1,705)

With five players remaining, the average chip stack is about 252,000 (11 Big Bets), and the remaining players are all guaranteed to earn at least $2,245 each.
