Barry Greenstein eliminated and signs his book.

Omaha 8

It looked as though four bets had been put in by Barry Greenstein, Kyle Loman and Matthew Ashton preflop before the flop came out    . Greenstein checked, Loman bet, Ashton folded and Greenstein check-raised all in.


The   gave both gutshot straight draws but the   river helped neither, Loman's two pair was the better and Greenstein signed his book for his opponent before heading to the rail.

Stud 8

Kyle Loman:    /      /  
Richard Ashby:    /      /  

Richard Ashby was calling and check-calling all the way down the streets and was crippled when Loman flipped     for the wheel to scoop the pot.

The rest of Ashby's chips went in with     against Benjamin Lukas'    . Ashby ended up making eights and sixes with no low but Lukas backdoored into trip threes to eliminate the Englishman.

Omaha 8

Brent Carter got it all-in before the flop against Antony Lellouche holding the     . Lellouche revealed the      and the two players waited for the deck to decide their fates.

The final board rolled out       and Carter's pair of nines and an A-2-3-4-7 low were good enough to claim the entire pot.

Stud 8

Kevin Iacofano has just taken three quarters of a pot, but it was in Stud 8 not Omaha 8. Iacofano's board when we got there was         against Antony Lellouche's         meaning they both made a six-perfect low but Iacofano's ace-king high was good enough for the other half of the pot

Omaha 8

Kevin Iacofano raised from the button and Owais Ahmed three-bet from the small blind. Iacofano then went all-in for his last 29,000 and the players revealed their holdings.



Ahmed was in good shape with his pair of kings and a suited ace-four, but the flop fell     and Iacofano picked up a flush draw. The   on the turn completed his flush and after the   arrived on the river, he had earned a much needed double-up.
