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

“Humberto Only Plays The Nuts”

• Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Humberto Brenes had Dale Kunkel all in on a {Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} board. They flipped their cards and Kunkel had {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for top set and the nut low draw. Brenes was ahead though with {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts} for the nut straight and same low draw. The {3-} river didn’t pair the board meaning Brenes would win three-quarters of the pot and boost his already massive stack to 168,000. Afterwards, he said “Humberto only plays the nuts”.
