Yesterday, Joe Cassidy, Phil Ivey and Scotty "the Prince" Nguyen played three-handed in Event #24: Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-better.

Nice win.

Must be even sweeter to beat a living legend of the game for your first bracelet like that.

How many more events are left?

Congratulations to the winner not for just taking the gold bracelet but also for mastering such a complex game Smile

Lately i also tried to play some omaha hi-low and the strategy is totally different compared to omaha hi.

Looking forward to other events too Big Smile
