When Event #3: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better was down to the final two players on Sunday afternoon, Jacob Dahl enjoyed a 2-1 chip advantage over Robert Mizrachi. The duel didn't begin well for Mizrachi, who wasn't just battling a tough opponent but also a cold.
However, Mizrachi managed to stay afloat thanks of a series of split pots. Eventually the tables turned and he started winning pot after pot. Dahl couldn't find a way to stop Mizrachi's good run and was defeated after about 90 minutes. This is how the final hand was played out:
Jacob Dahl raised from the button, Robert Mizrachi tree-betted. Dahl re-rasied all in, Mizrachi called.
The flopped rolled out 1072103
Mizrachi makes Ax 2x 3x 5x 7x low and win the high with pocket fives.
