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

Waxman Gives Up

• Level 25: 13,000-25,000, 0 ante

Bradley Helm raised preflop to 50,000 from the cutoff, Matt Waxman and Francesco Barbaro called from the button and small blind respectively to see a flop of {K-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Barbaro checked, Helm bet 25,000 and Waxman called with Barbaro folding.

The turn was the {K-Clubs} and Helm bet 50,000 which sent Waxman into the tank, the latter eventually choosing to give it up.

Waxman lost the pot after that as well, getting check-raised by Kostas Kalathakis on a {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and reluctantly folding. Nevertheless, Waxman, Kalathakis and Barbaro are making clear ground between themselves and the other four players at this moment.
