Event 24: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Boonie and Mizrachi Chop


We caught the action on a {A-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop when Michael Kleist, better known as Boonie, check-called a 600 bet. His opponent was Michael Mizrachi and he face a 1,200 from Kleist when the turn brought out the {10-Diamonds}. Mizrachi raised to 2,400 and Kleist followed with the call.

The river was the {7-Clubs} and both players checked. Mizrachi announced he had aces with a live deuce and showed {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{2-Hearts} while Kleist tabled {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. The pot got chopped and the players moved on like nothing happened.

We are playing a split pot game today and will see a lot of situation like this.
