Seiver Getting Low

• Level 19

Omaha 8

Abe Mosseri raised to 80,000 under the gun and Scott Seiver defended from the big blind, which brought about a flop of {8-Spades}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Seiver check-called a bet of 40,000, and then check-called two bets of 80,000 on the {Q-Spades} turn and {9-Hearts} river.

Mosseri tabled the {a-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} for trip deuces, and it was good as Seiver mucked.

Obst Takes a Nice One from Kassela

• Level 19

Stud 8

James Obst brought it in with the {2-Hearts} and Frank Kassela completed with his {7-Clubs}. Chun Lein Zhou then raised with the {A-Diamonds}, both Obst and Kassela called, and three players went to fourth street. Obst paired deuced but checked, which opened the door for Kassela to bet. Zhou opted to foled, Obst called, and Obst called bets on every subsequent street.

Obst: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} / {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Spades}
Kassela: {7-Clubs}{2-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} / {a-Spades}{6-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Zhou: {x-}{x-} / {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}fold

Kassela held two pair, but it was inferior to the eights and deuces of Obst.
