$2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo

They’re back in action in 2.5 O8B (bear with me, still experimenting with new abbreviations) … Mike Matusow is out, but with 14 players left Team Pokerati-er Pat Poels is climbing back hanging on for dear life. Mark Tenner is the chip-leader, but imho the guy you really have to watch out for is Mark Gregorich. This game caters to his style, and with half-a-table of knockouts to go before the final, fifth chip position is arguably a stronger spot to be in than momentary #1.

UPDATE: 13 left now. Pat in 11th chip position. Needs a scoop something fierce …

UPDATE: 12 left … but Poels involved negatively in the three-way-action scooped pot that knocked out Patrice Boudet. OK, now 11 left … Pat still near the bottom, but with more relative chips. 8th overall — and that’s with having just lost a pot. At the same time, even a double-up right now would still leave him in 8th place.

Here’s what they’re playing for when they get down near the final table bubble in this sort lower-middle buy-in split-game event. Obviously the $229k for the bracelet is nice, but for the non-winners, where exactly they finish could make the difference on whether or not they have a wave a winning or losing World Series:

1 $ 229,192
2 $ 141,647
3 $ 93,199
4 $ 65,094
5 $ 48,028
6 $ 37,350
7 $ 30,562
8 $ 26,213
9 $ 23,541
10 $ 17,007
11 $ 17,007

UPDATE: Poels = 9th. Nice-ish.
