Event 47: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

From the Penthouse to the Outhouse

Joe Tehan

Not more than a half an hour ago, Joe Tehan sat atop the chip counts. That made it all the more surprising when he became our latest casualty. We're not sure of all the specifics, but we did arrive at his table just in time to see him get his last 35,000 in on a flop of {8-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. Mikhail Semin had him covered and at risk.

Tehan: {A-Hearts}{J-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}
Semin: {A-Spades}{5-Spades}{K-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

Tehan was ahead with jacks and fours when the chips went in, not to mention an ace-high flush draw, but the running {K-Spades} turn and {A-Clubs} river gave Semin top two pair and the win.

A quick check of Tehan's Twitter reveals what left him with a less than average stack in the first place:
