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

Tapscott Movd into the Lead


Herbert Tapscott was down to around 65,000 not so long ago, but he just won a pot to take over the lead from Gavin Griffin.

These two players and Ashly Butler had made it all the way to the river where the board read {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. There had been action all the way down swelling the pot to around a 900,000.

Griffin had a stab on the river and was called by Tapscott.

Griffin: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades} for ace-king high.
Tapscott: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades} for queens.
Butler had open folded {a-}{a-}{6-}{4-} just before this and was instantly regretting it after he saw his opponents' hands.
