During a round of Omaha-8, Chris Labrie limped UTG+1 for 10,000, Hoyt Verner limped from middle position, Marty Raschkovan limped from the cutoff, Shane Daniels completed the small blind, and Bobby Leff checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came Qh8d6s, and it checked to Labrie, who bet 10,000. Verner called, and Raschkovan called all in for 9,000. Daniels and Leff both called the 10,000.

At that point there was 95,000 in the main pot, and another 4,000 in the side pot. Any further betting would contribute to the side pot.

The turn card was the 2c, , and it checked to Verner, who bet 20,000. Daniels and Leff both folded, and Labrie called.

The river card was the 4c, Labrie checked, Verner bet 20,000 (with just 1K left behind), and Labrie called.

All three players turned over their cards:

Chris Labrie:  As8s4s2s  (two pair, eights and fours, 8-6 low)
Hoyt Verner:  Ad5s3d3c  (five-high straight)
Marty Raschkovan:  AhKhQcJs  (pair of queens)

Verner scooped the entire pot with a wheel to nearly triple his stack and eliminate Raschkovan in ninth place.

Hoyt Verner  –  180,000  (9 BB)
Chris Labrie  –  115,000  (6 BB)
Marty Raschkovan  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($875)

With eight players remaining from a field of 81 entries, the average chip stack is around 122,000 (6 Big Bets). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $950 each.
