Event #29: $2,500 10-Game Mix / Six Handed

Traniello Takes One Down

Omaha 8/B

Marco Traniello raised from UTG +1 and found only caller in the form of Freddy Deeb from the button, so off they went heads-up to the flop of {A-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. Traniello led out and Deeb called both after the flop and after the turn of the {10-Clubs}, but when Traniello opened again on the river of the {4-Diamonds}, Deeb let his hand go.

With the field now down to just 49 players (seven bust-outs from the money), we suspect that it will be slow going from this point. And rightly so - each player that makes it into the money in this event (let alone win it) will be creating history!
