It must’ve been a good table … because Party’s poker-room manager Mike O’Malley finished in an admirable 19th place (out of 265) in the $5,000 Omaha hi-lo event. His payout: $7,473. Not a bad two-days work.
Sammy Farha, however, did a little better — particularly for a guy who’s Omaha prowess is in the pot-limit variety, as opposed to Omaha 8-or-better (aka hi-lo … a limit game). He got 1st place … taking home $398,560.
