Chuck Jacoby moved all in under the gun for 35,000, David Shmuel called from the small blind, and Claudangelo Beaudouin called from the big blind.

Shmuel and Beaudouin checked all the way down on a board of 10h8d7c6c2c, and all three players turned over their cards.

David Shmuel:  KdKcJc4s  (king-high flush)
Claudangelo Beaudouin:  Jh10c9d3c  (ten-high flush)
Chuck Jacoby:  QdJd10s9c  (jack-high straight)

Nobody had a qualifying low, so Shmuel won the entire pot with his king-high flush to eliminate Jacoby in sixth place.

Beaudouin said, “This is why I hate checking down. I flopped a straight and had blockers, but let you get there.”

David Shmuel  –  435,000  (17 bb)
Claudangelo Beaudouin  –  205,000  (8 bb)
Chuck Jacoby  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($1,496)

With five players remaining, the average chip stack is about 210,000 (8 big blinds), and the next player to be eliminated will receive $1,870.

The final table for Omaha 8 is down to the final seven players, after the eliminations of Ricardo Quintero in 9th place, followed by Lazaro Rodriguez in 8th place.

8th:  Lazaro Rodriguez  –  $1,047
9th:  Ricardo Quintero  –  $965

There was a three-way all-in preflop situation, with Bryce Fox as the short stack, Chuck Jacoby as the mid stack, and Peter Dirksen covering them both.

Peter Dirksen:  8s6s5d3d
Chuck Jacoby:  9c4s3s2c
Bryce Fox:  QdJc7h2d

The board came Kc10c4c7c8h, and Jacoby flopped a club flush to win the high side, and his 3-2 gave him the low to scoop the entire pot, doubling thru Dirksen and eliminating Fox in seventh place.

Chuck Jacoby  –  80,000  (4 bb)
Peter Dirksen  –  110,000  (6 bb)
Bryce Fox  –  Eliminated in 7th Place  ($1,242)
