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

Cunningham Short Again

• Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

We came in to the hand when Allen Cunningham bet 8,000 on the turn with a board of {J-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs} only to be raised by Francesco "Cheech" Barbaro in early position. Cunningham made the call and both saw the river of {9-Hearts}

Cunningham checked but Barbaro bet out 8,000 and Cunningham called.

Barbaro showed {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{Q-Spades} for trip jacks, and Cunningham felted only the {2-Spades} as he thought for a while about whether his hand held any clout. After about 30 seconds of looking and thinking, he decided not and mucked. He was left with about 25,000 which is pretty short at this point in the tournament.
