Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better

Ramos Will Take a Chop

• Nivel 7: 250-500, 0 ante

Felipe Ramos opened to 1,150 from early position, and a player in middle position three-bet to 4,200. Ramos called after some time in the tank, and the flop brought {J-Spades} {8-Clubs} {7-Spades}. When Ramos checked, the middle-position player tried to bet all in with his full stack of about 15,000. "The bet is 9,150," the dealer announced. Ramos went ahead and raised his opponent all in, and the call came to give him a chance at the knockout.

Ramos: {A-Spades} {4-Spades} {Q-Hearts} {K-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Clubs} {A-Hearts} {5-Hearts} {8-Hearts}

Ramos was drawing at both the high and the low, while his opponent's aces were in front as the cards lay. The turn and river came {5-Clubs} and {8-Spades}, and Ramos clapped his hands together in celebration, thinking he'd scooped. He'd made an ace-high flush, but it took a point from his opponent to notice the runner-runner full house he'd made to stay alive.

Ramos decided that a chop was just fine with him, and he'll take the low half to keep himself around 24,000.
