Steven Wolansky had the button. He raised the action and it folded to Michael Hurey in the big blind who three-bet. Wolsansky announced four bets and Hurey five bet all in.

"Call. Aces," remarked Wolansky, tabling {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}.

Hurey meekly showed {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and was in extreme need of help.

Unfortunately for Hurey the board failed to oblige as it fell {5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}{J-Spades}. He was eliminated in 5th place and will take home $47,771 in winnings.

Omaha Eight or Better

Greg Mueller raised from under the gun, and Mike Wattel called from the big blind.

The flop came {3-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{10-Clubs}, and Wattel check-raised the last of his chips.

Wattel: {2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Mueller: {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{j-Clubs}

Mueller had the superior low draw, but Wattel's threes led for high. A {k-Hearts} fell on the turn, and Wattel was in decent shape to survive. An {a-Hearts} river gave Mueller both the high and the low though, and Wattel hit the rail.
