Event #18: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

McMaster Escapes From Elimination

zedmaster84 • Level 15: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Derek McMaster chopped with {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts} against the {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{10-Clubs} of Mike Matusow when his flopped set of eights could not secure the double, as Matusow turned a flush and dodged a paired board.

Soon after, McMaster raised with 1,000 behind and Gary Bolden called in the big blind. The remaining chip went in after the {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop and McMaster turned over {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. Bolden only held {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and the {10-Spades} turn and {4-Clubs} river were no threat for McMaster.
