The World Championship Omaha Hi-Low $5,000 buy-in event started on the 21st June lasting for three days, this event was scheduled to be the 36th event at the World Series of Poker 2007. Playing Omaha Hi-Low can be a long drawn out game with so many of the pots being split which meant the sessions were very long and the final table had to be delayed for a few hours to get through all the contestants.

Max Reynard was leading the field at the start of the final table, with over half a million chips sat in front of him. Jim Grove was on the short stack only having $163,000 but wasn’t the only one with two other players having less than $200,000.

Final Table Chip Standings:

  • 1st Max Reynard $529,000
  • 2nd David Flores $450,000
  • 3rd Robert Stevanovski $384,000
  • 4th John Guth $381,000
  • 5th Randy Jensen $283,000
  • 6th Greg Jaminson $223,000
  • 7th Bart Hanson $191,000
  • 8th Michael Kollwitz $189,000
  • 9th Jim Grove $163,000

Jim Grove on the short stack was the first player to exit the tournament loosing against David Flores. Flores hit a Five high straight with the Flop and Turn coming down :8h :as :5d :4h and Groves only chance was to split the pot with a heart flush draw. The :10d came down on the River sending Grove to the rail collecting $23,688 in 9th place.

Bart Hansen the only player to appear at a WSOP final table was the next player to be knocked out of the tournament. Hansen was beaten by Randy Jensen with a pair of Sevens with Hansen only hitting a pair of Fives, with no low hand possible on the board. Hansen finished up in 8th place winning $32,900.

Only two hands later Randy Jensen eliminated Michael Pollowitz into 7th place, his second in a row. Jensen won the high hand with two pair of Aces and Fours and won the low hand holding 4-7. Pollowitz hand of A-Q-Q-10 was easily beaten giving Jensen the huge pot going out collecting $44,744 in prize money.

These wins didn’t prevent Randy Jensen from being the next player to go out of the tournament. First he was crippled loosing a big pot against Robert Stevanovski, then on the very next hand he was eliminated by John Guth in a three way pot. Jensen was All In after the Flop came down :qc :7h :10d and both Guth and Greg Jamison checked down the cards to the River. Guth won the pot turning over :kd :js hitting the straight with no low hand possible.

Greg Jameson found himself on the short stack not too long after when loosing a number of pots in a row, and eventually going out beaten by Robert Stevanovski. Jameson’s two pair Aces and Sixes was beaten by Stevanovski with a higher two pair Aces and Queens, Jameson going out in 5th place wining $75,012.

Max Reynard who started out as chip leader at the beginning of this final table didn’t really get going at all and found himself short stacked, after mostly being blinded down and loosing some small pots along the way. His exit came when his All In move was called by Guth and Stevanovski and the cards was checked down to the River. Stevanovski took down the pot hitting the wheel and a Six high straight knocking Reynard out in 4th place wining $101,332.

Robert Stevanovski was in the chip lead at this point with 1.2 million in chips but wasn’t too far ahead of Guth on $845,000 and Flores on $700,000.

David Flores met his end when running into John Guth with A-A-K-K with only having Q-Q-7-3 whilst being pot committed. The final board came down :8c :jh :10d :7h :js knocking Flores out in 3rd place winning $148,708.

Heads up play took nearly three hours to complete with Guth dominating the play first of all, and then Stevanovski making a good fight back over taking Guth for the chip lead. John Guth kept his cool where many other would have buckled and eventually won through. The final hand came when Guth trapped Stevanovski into the pot holding a full house.  Guth an ecstatic winner was crowned WSOP 2007 Omaha Hi-Low champion winning $363,216, and collecting his coveted WSOP bracelet.
