Bubble Looms

$300 + $50 Omaha H/L

They resumed play after dinner with level 15, limits 3k/6k.

Only in Omaha Hi/Lo can you flop the nut straight, turn a straight-flush, and end up with only half the pot. That happened to a player holding 8655. The flop was 764 giving him the nut straight, then the 5 landed on the turn giving him the straight-flush and a hammer lock on half the pot. His opponent took the other half with A2xx for the nut low.

Terry Wells

Players were dropping fast as the high limits were eating up the short stacks. Terry Wells has taken the lead. He's up to 105k. Adel Shakerian has about 90k.

Walter Soho told me he's taking it easy right now, but as soon at they make the money, (18 players) he's going to kick it into high gear and take this one down!

With 21 players remaining, level 15 concluded and they continued into level 16 with limits of 4k/8k.

Another short-stack was dispatched and with 20 players left they were just two away from payday.

Joseph Gaval (Barnegat, NJ) wins the Father of the Day award this Father's Day. He has seven children, four girls and three boys, ranging in age from 18 down to 5. "I got up early and did the Father's Day thing, then left to come play poker". He lives about 40 minutes away, so the drive wasn't too bad. Perhaps his Father's Day present will be cashing in this tournament!
