Abe Mosseri Triumphs at 2017 WSOP $10k Omaha Hi/Lo Event

Abe Mosseri Triumphs at 2017 WSOP $10k Omaha Hi/Lo EventThe 2017 WSOP $10,000 Omaha eight-or-better championship event was supposed to only last three days, but after running on into the night, the last two remaining competitors, Abe Mosseri and Daniel Negreanu, took an overnight break before returning to the action the following day. Despite starting at a 2-to-1 chip disadvantage, Negreanu had high hopes of capturing a seventh career gold bracelet, but on the final day it was Mosseri who would eventually vanquish his opponent after just four hands to claim the victory, as well as a first place prize worth $388,795.
Back in 2009, Mosseri won his first WSOP bracelet after taking down the $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball event for $165,521, and commenting following his latest triumph in Las Vegas, explained:
“With the big blinds so big, everyone has to play every hand, and whoever gets good cards is going to win. The cards broke my way today. There was a lot more back and forth stuff going on yesterday, but today I just pounded him [Negreanu].”
Event #9: the $10,000 Omaha Hi/Lo Championship attracted 155 players to create a prize pool worth $1,447,600, and amongst the notable pros finishing in a top 24 money spot was Dan Shak in 16th ($16,848), Max Pescatori in 15th ($19,790), David Baker in 14th ($19,790), Mike Matusow in 8th ($37,120), Anthony Zinno in 7th ($47,975), and Fabrice Soulier in 4th ($118,340).
Three handed play then lasted a marathon five and a half hours before Yarron Bendor was eliminated, leaving Abe Mosseri and Daniel Negreanu to battle it out for the coveted title. Just a few minutes later, and Mosseri (8h-8c-6d-3d) and Negreanu (Js-6h-5h-4h) were all-in on a 9c-5s-2s flop, and after a Kh and Kc arrived on turn and river, Mosseri’s kings and eights were good enough to secure the bracelet for the New York pro. In the meantime, Daniel Negreanu collected $241,851 for his runner-up finish, and has now made two final tables at this year’s Series.
“I think there have been eight nights so far this WSOP and I’ve bagged chips on seven nights out of eight, explained Negreanu. “That’s what I signed up for, and that’s why I got in good physical shape before the WSOP so that I could handle the fatigue. Having a week like this really sets me up for a good run at the WSOP Player of the Year. I feel primed and ready to go!”
Final Table Result:
1: Abe Mosseri $391,313
2: Daniel Negreanu $241,851
3: Yarron Bendor $166,895
4: Fabrice Soulier $118,340
5: Ilya Dyment $85,702
6: Ray Dehkharghani $63,419
7: Anthony Zinno $47,975
8: Mike Matusow $37,120
9: John Monnette $29,391
