Omaha 8/b

A few hands after his recent double up John D'Agostino raised from middle position, going all in, in an Omaha 8/b hand with Matt Vengrin calling from the button and Dario Minieri calling from the small blind.

The flop came   and Minieri bet with Vengrin calling. The two would follow the same betting pattern with the   on the turn and the   on the river.

When it was time to show the cards they looked something like this:




D'Agostino won the high from the main pot with his straight. Minieri and Vengrin split the main low.

Minieri won the high portion of the side pot and once more split the low portion with Vengrin.

When the hand was complete, Vengrin asked Minieri how he could bet the river with nothing but a pair of threes. Scott Seiver chimed in and said it was because he had a lock on the low.

2-7 Triple Draw

Jared Jaffee was just involved in two big 2-7 Triple Draw hands. The first hand started off with a raise from Kirk Morrison in the cutoff with Jesse Martin calling from the button and Jared Jaffee calling from the big blind. Morrison drew two, Martin drew three and Jaffee drew one card.

Jaffee was first to act after the first draw and led out with a bet, getting called by both of his opponents. Jaffee stood pat, but Martin and Morrison each took two cards.

Jaffee led out with another bet with Morrison folding and Martin calling. Jaffee continued to stand pat, while Martin drew one last card. Jaffee checked on the last round of betting and called a bet from Martin.

Martin tabled   for the nuts and Jaffee mucked, clearly upset with the way things went.

On the very next hand Morrison raised from the button with Jaffee calling from the small blind and Adam Spiegelberg calling from the big blind. Both Morrison and Jaffee drew two cards and Spiegelberg drew one.

Action was checked around with Morrison and Jaffee again drawing two cards and Spiegelberg drawing one. When Jaffee bet after the second draw, he got a call from Spiegelberg but Morrison folded. Each player drew one card before the last round of betting.

The final bet came from Jaffee with Spiegelberg simply calling. Spiegelberg tabled   and Jaffee mucked.
