Event 42: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better

Danzer Pushes Out to 2-to-1 Lead

Oleksii Kovalchuk and George Danzer battle for the Event 42 bracelet


It appeared at first that once they switched back to Omaha-8, the momentum was going to switch back to Oleksii Kovalchuk, as the Ukrainian grabbed the first three hands — all relatively small pots. But then came a big one that resulted in George Danzer extending his advantage.

The hand began with Kovalchuk raising from the button, Danzer three-betting, and Kovalchuk calling. The flop came {6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}. Danzer bet, and Kovalchuk called. The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, and Danzer fired again. Kovalchuk responded with a raise this time, and Danzer shot right back with a three-bet which Kovalchuk called.

The river was the {3-Clubs}. Danzer bet one more time, and when Kovalchuk called, Danzer quickly tabled his {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} — the nut flush and a 7-low. Kovalchuk looked back and forth between his hand and Danzer's for a few moments, then mucked.
