Event #3: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better

The Razor Gets Scooped

• Level 7: 200-400, 0 ante

John Phan had once built his stack up to 30,000, but he has been slipping the past few hours and just took another blow. Phan raised the button following a limp from an under the gun opponent and fellow poker pro Tuan Le. Both players called and they took a flop of {3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. It was checked to Phan, who bet 400, only getting one call as Le folded his hand. When the {7-Hearts} hit the turn, Phan was check raised to 1600 by his opponent, and Phan opted to call. Phan called on the river when it came the {j-Clubs}, and his opponent tabled {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, for an ace high flush and the nut low. Phan mucked his hand, and has slid down to 7,500.
