Event #47: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low-8 or Better

Appleman Wins a Hand, Wood Loses Two

Shamus • Level 15

For this half-and-half tourney of split-pot games, here's a split-post.

Stud 8

Matthew Wood completed with the {2-Spades} and it folded around to Mickey Appleman, sitting on Wood's right, who completed with the {6-Hearts} up. Wood paused, leaving Appleman an opening. "Come on, I haven't won a hand in two hours."

Wood then folded, showing he had another {2-} underneath. "Now you've won one," said Perry Friedman. Appleman currently has about 26,000.

Omaha 8

They switched games on the next hand, and on this one it was Wood who was wishing for some charity. But none came after he and Mayu Roca Uribe put in several bets on every street to the river as the board filled out {9-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{7-Spades}. When Uribe bet on the final street, Wood shook his head in disgust, and turned over his hand -- {K-}{Q-}{J-}{10-} -- before mucking.

Wood is now down to about 6,000, while Uribe has about 48,000.
