Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better

Lose Some, Lose Some for Giang


As we approach the first break, things are not going Chau Giang's way. He's on a table with "Hollywood" Dave Stann and Andy Black. Both players recently tagged Giang for pots.

We didn't see the action in the hand between Stann and Giang. At showdown, however, Giang flashed {a-Clubs} {2-Clubs} as Stann scooped a 14,000-chip pot with {a-Spades} {9-Diamonds} {q-Clubs} {j-Clubs} on a board of {9-Hearts} {a-Diamonds} {2-Hearts} {8-Spades} {5-Hearts}.

A few hands later, Giang limped into a pot before Andy Black raised from the blinds. Giang was the only caller to a paired flop, {q-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {2-Hearts}. Black bet the flop, then also bet the {10-Clubs} turn. Giang called each time. Both players checked the {9-Hearts} river.

"I've got an overpair," said Giang. Black opened double-suited aces, {a-Clubs} {a-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {6-Clubs}.

"Small overpair," Giang amended as he mucked.
