Event 58: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Scotty Nguyen Eliminated in 8th Place ($33,789)

Scotty Nguyen

We didn't catch the preflop action, but we do know that on a flop of {3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} things exploded between Scotty Nguyen and David "ODB" Baker that resulted in the former being all in for around 240,000.

Nguyen: {3-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Baker: {3-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{K-Clubs}

Both players had flopped trip threes, but Baker's ace kicker had him out in front. Nguyen needed some help if he was going to keep the hope of a sixth bracelet alive, but it was not to be as the {Q-Diamonds} turn and {2-Hearts} river blanked.

Nguyen, who finished runner-up in Event #24 $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better earlier this series, exited in eighth place with his second final table of the summer under his belt.
