Sklar's On a Rampage

Richard Sklar

Omaha 8

Richard Sklar has not slowed down one bit after getting ahold of some chips two levels ago. Calvin Anderson raised from the small blind and Sklar defended his big. The flop brought out {A-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} and Sklar called a bet.

On the turn, the {9-Hearts} hit and Anderson bet again. Sklar called. The river brought the {6-Spades} and Anderson check-called. Sklar showed {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for a flush and a low - the same low that Anderson had - with {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Sklar got three quarters and Anderson was knocked down to 213,000.

On the very next hand, it was Randy Ohel who raised and Sklar called from the small blind. The flop brought out {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Anderson lead out; Ohel called. On the turn, the {10-Hearts} hit and Ohel called another bet. The river was the {5-Hearts} and Sklar lead once again; Ohel called.

"Gin rummy," Sklar yelled out as he threw {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{6-Hearts} onto the felt. Sklar had made the nut low and a full house, enough to scoop this pot.

"I don't care about the bracelet! Just give me the money," said Sklar with a wry smile.

The colorful gentleman who's been all smiles every day added, "I've been gambling every day for the last 45 years. All I care about are boats and houses and taking trips."

The players at the table laughed and offered to take the bracelet from Sklar, who's in control of this final table for now.
