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

Sexton Ships the Double

• Nivel 20: 8,000-15,000, 0 ante
Mike Sexton

We picked up the action on the flop as Mike Sexton was betting the {2-Spades} {4-Diamonds} {J-Spades}. Brendan Taylor was his only opponent in the pot, and he called to see the {6-Clubs} turn. Sexton checked this time, and Taylor took his cue to bet. Sexton snuck in the check-raise, and Taylor called the extra bet to see the {10-Hearts} river. Sexton bet all but his last 5,000 chips, and Taylor called.

Mr. Sexton announced, "Nut-nut," in that made-for-TV voice and we childishly giggled just a little bit. He turned up {A-Spades} {2-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {5-Clubs}, and his wheel and six-high straight earn him the scoop and the double up to about 295,000.
