Thursday, June 12, 2008 | Francis Lee


The Amazon card room was packed out as the $2,000 Omaha Hi/Lo started off. 553 players entered this tournament creating a total prize pool of $1,106,000 shared between the last 54 finishers. In a strong field starting out was well known poker pro’s such as Barry Greenstein, Greg Raymer, Justin Bonomo, Jeff Lisandro and Daniel Negreanu.

After the first two gruelling days play there was still 18 players remaining in the tournament, all fighting for a seat on the final table. After four hours play we were finally reached the final table as Lee Grove busted out in 10th place by Andrew Brown, moving Brown into second place in the chip rankings. Scott Clements was leading the field at this point on $397,000 in chips. Jimmy Fricke was on the short stack with just $51,000 and needed to make a good start.

Jimmy Fricke on the short stack was inevitably the first player out a the start of play, beaten by Andrew Brown having two pair after the Turn. Fricke hit no piece of the board going out in 9th place winning $21,135.

The next short stacked player Allan Enciso was the next player to head for the rail in a three way pot,  involving Scott Clements and Ted Forrest. Forrest won the high hand with a set of Kings and Clement took the other half with Eight low.

The early chip leader Scott Clements proceeded to go on tilt and eventually lost all his chips to Andrew Brown. Brown won the pot hitting a full house leaving Clements to collect $36,232 in 7th place. Just after this hand Ralph Perry found himself All In in a four way pot. Brown came out victorious hitting a set of Sevens on the River.

Kia Hooshmand was next to head for the rail as his Aces and Deuces two pair was out done by Ted Forrest with Aces and Nines. Forth place was decided not too long after as Soheil Shamseddin moved All In looking for a low draw up against Brown with an already made full house. The last two cards came down high handing Brown the whole pot.

Jim Pechac’s tournament right from the start of day two was basically, a fight to stay alive seriously short stacked. He made this last all the way to third place confirming the fact that if you have chips left on the table, you are never dead. Pechac walked away with $88,065 as Brown picked up another knockout hand hitting two pair.

Brown held the chip lead at the start of heads up play but Forest wasn’t going to give up easily lasting for over an hour. Brown finally won the tournament, finishing Forest off with two pair high and eight low. Brown collected the $226,483 first place prize and his very first WSOP bracelet.
