Scott Fitzhugh


Before Scott Fitzhugh took half of that main pot in Omaha 8, he had folded his small blind and had only 9,000. Now he is up to about 120,000 thanks to a double-up in Razz.

Cat Mon:  (X-X)  /  9x4x6x
Scott Fitzhugh:  (X-X)  /  4xAx4x

Cat Mon limped in for 5,000, Fitzhugh completed to 15,000, and Mon called. Fitzhugh bet 15,000 on fourth street, Mon called, and Mon check-called Fitzhugh’s all-in bet of about 30,000 on fifth street.

Cat Mon:  2x6x  /  9x4x6x
Scott Fitzhugh:  3x5x  /  4xAx4x

Here were the rest of their runouts:

Cat Mon:  2x6x  /  9x4x6x3x  /  9x
Scott Fitzhugh:  3x5x  /  4xAx4xJx  /  8x

Mon made a nine-six on sixth street and didn’t improve on seventh, while Fitzhugh has to catch to survive on seventh, and made an eight-five to double up.

Scott Fitzhugh  –  120,000  (4 BB)
Cat Mon  –  160,000  (5 BB)
