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

Cassidy Needed This


After starting today with a big chip lead, Joe Cassidy probably couldn't help himself thinking about on what wrist to put his gold bracelet.

These thoughts were knocked out of him pretty quickly as Scotty Nguyen mounted a serious comeback. We just saw Cassidy win a decent pot, and this probably gives him a bit more confidence in winning this one.

Cassidy raised from the button and Nguyen defended his big blind. The flop came down {2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Nguyen check-raised Cassidy's bet and the call was made.

The turn was the {A-Spades} and both players checked. The river was the {3-Spades} and Nguyen check-called a 120,000 chip bet.

Cassidy turned over {A-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} and with a wheel he took down both parts of the pot.
