Good Start for Sirisakorn

Jan_Kores • Niveau 21: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Omaha Hi-Lo

Smith Sirisakorn scooped a pot against Abdel Hamid and took down another in the next hand, facing Barry Greenstein in a blind-versus-blind battle.

Sirisakorn raised preflop and then barreled flop and turn. Greenstein called on each occasion before the river went check-check with the board showing {9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

Sirisakorn opened his {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} for top two pairs and raked in the pot.

Stud Hi-Lo

Samoeun Mon had the bring-in and Larry Tull completed. Esther Taylor called, as did Mon. Tull bet out on every street with Taylor calling him down as Mon dropped out on fourth.

Mon: {X-}{X-} / {4-Diamonds}{K-Spades} (folded on fourth)
Tull: {X-}{X-} / {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{J-Clubs} / {X-}
Taylor: {X-}{X-} / {9-Spades}{J-Spades}{3-Spades}{9-Diamonds} / {X-}

After Tull's bet was called on seventh, he tabled his {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a full house, and Taylor mucked while dropping to 55,000. Tull is now up to 560,000.
