2018 WSOP: Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better won by Julien Martini for $239,771

Tags: 2018 WSOP, Julien Martini.
Posted on 05 June 2018 by "T".

It was a great weekend for Julien Martini at this year's WSOP as he became the very first non-American poker player to win a gold bracelet after a tough heads-up match with Kate Hoang in Event #4 $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better. He won his very first WSOP title bracelet plus a sweet $239,771 prize money.

The battle between the last two players at the final table took nearly 3 and a half hours. Finally, it was the Frenchman who won when the dealer revealed a king on the river, which went well with his K-10-4-4 on hand.

Martini described his final opponent after the event, "She is very tough and very hard to play."

As a reward for being in second place, the Vietnamese native Hoang got $148,150. In fact, she also barely missed a gold bracelet in a $3,000 PLO Hi-Lo event, finishing 2nd spot to Kyle Bowker, winning $182,281 in the process.

A 911-player field accumulated a prize pool of $1,229,850, with the action extended to an extra 4th day (the original schedule was supposed to be 3 days only). On Day 4, four players returned, the shortest-stacked William Kopp (4th) and Mack Lee (3rd) stumbling down while Hoang and Martini battled heads-up for the top spot.

Both the champion and runner-up of this event have confirmed that $10,000 of their winnings shall go toward the buy-in of Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship that started its Day 1 on June 3, Sunday.

poker there are several modalities that are very played by all the players of the world most undoubtedly one of the OMAHA and one of the most widespread in the cash of life and the most difficult and addictive for the recreations and congratulations to the champion there because it has to have a lot ability to win the world cup

This is the game i like and i have played the most.
Unfortunately, not many games of this format are being broadcasted,
and when they do most of the times im busy Smile
A very nice win for 1.5k buy in.

Many congratz to him on winning this omaha event. I find Omaha a very difficult game but i find Omaha Hi-Lo an almost impossible game to fathom out and this discipline is not for me

great to see that ladies are showing men how to play poker... not the winner eventually, but a very solid second place and that means that she has defeated a gang of more than 900 men (what a gang bang that would be...) congrats martini dude for finally owning hoang

I do not understand the omaha hi lo game but i played a omaha game with 5000 fixed players and i won 1st with 5.17 dollars my prize. A nice amount of money compared with money earned by Julien Martini in this tournament. Smile Anyway is a beautiful sum for this Frenchman and now he can play more games in this WSOP.

It is an easy game. You can grasp the basics at once.
If you are lucky enough and you know what you are doing you can make money out of it.
You will need to be very careful of the split pots, to know when to bet and how much.
Also some times it saves you money calling, when you are sure that the pot is a split Smile

Omaha hi lo is a super great game, when you have plenty of idiots at the table who do not know the basic rules of the game right or just play the game as if Omaha hi for the most of time, but when the table is dominated by those who are good Omaha hi lo players this game becomes very frustrating to play and very hard to scoop both pots

win an Omaha event and for a few because there are unimeras possibilities and everything can happen to the river because ah many more cards and many more combos that gives the turnaround on the river one card can leave you nuts and the other dro ended parabens to the winner
 godoy10/06/2018 16:01:15 GMT
play an event of this and a blessing and still be able to win it and a most wonderful thing in the world because this game is very difficult to master because it requires a lot of concentration and focus because hi and for few and omaha hi lo and for very few
 dule-vu10/06/2018 17:59:51 GMT

Big congratulations to Julien Martini from France on winning the $1,500 buy-in Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better tournament and scooping nearly a quarter-million dollars. I have played Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better a couple of times online, but I couldn't quite understand the rules.
