Event #11: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship

Deeb's Nuts

• Nivel 15: 2,500-5,000, 0 ante
Shaun Deeb

We just caught the tail end of the pot as the board showed {6-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs} {9-Clubs} {8-Clubs}. Shaun Deeb was heads up with Jim Grove, and Deeb capped it on the river with five big bets in the pot. Grove called the last bullet confidently, but Deeb announced, "Nuts," to his surprise.

It was the second nuts, actually, but Deeb's {A-Clubs} {6-Clubs} {3-Spades} {4-Diamonds} was plenty good enough to take the big pot.

"Oh, come on!" Grove lamented as he shuffled his cards in his hands. He mumbled something about kings and queens, and Deeb simply shrugged as he collected the pot to climb to about 235,000. That's in contention for the chip lead.
