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

Chen Finds a Double Up

• Level 9: 300-600, 0 ante

We have been playing for just six minutes since the break, yet Bill Chen has already put his short stack on the line twice preflop. The first hand resulted in a chop, but he won the second hand to get his hands on a few more chips. Chen got his last 1,600 in showing {a-Spades}{2-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} against his opponents {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}. The board ran out {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{j-Spades}{k-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, giving both players trips, but Chen the best hand with his {10-Diamonds} kicker. Chen now has 4,000.
