Omaha 8

After the turn of a 10hJs6c5h board, a three-way all in emerged with Jorge Matute in the small blind, Maksim Pisarenko for a little bit less in the big blind and Andrew Woodmancey had them both covered from under the gun.

Matute: Ah7h5d2h
Pisarenko: AcKd8s2d
Woodmancey: Ad9h6s2c

Everyone had low draws, while Woodmancey was in the lead with a pair of sixes at the moment for the high.

“Pair the board! Pair the board!” said Woodmancey.

The river was the 6d, in fact, pairing the board and giving Woodmancey trips to win the entire pot and eliminate both of his opponents.

Andrey Woodmancey – 530,000 (22 big bets)
Jorge Matute – Eliminated in 7th Place ($2,275)
Maksim Pisarenko – Eliminated in 8th Place ($1,900)

Despite the bigger buy-in, we’re still seeing a big turnout for today’s H.O.R.S.E. tournament with 80 players well before the first break. This is already the biggest $600 buy-in version of the tournament, mostly because there’s only been one before.

Notables in the field include Yuval Bronshtein, Amnon Filippi, David Levi, Allen Kessler, Joel Harwood, David Shmuel, and Shelly Roth.
