Event #25 $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better Winner Danny Fuhs

Danny Fuhs - Event 25 WSOP 2013
Share this

It's hard to tell if Danny Fuhs gave himself the gift of a gold bracelet on Father's Day or if he won it simply to please and impress his mom and dad who were both cheering him on — live! We strongly favor both reasons!

The biggest Omaha Hi/Low 8 or Better event of the 2013 WSOP brought 241 players to the tables and Fuhs was there at the end, after a grueling heads-up battle that lasted several hours. Fuhs defeated Christopher George to earn the title, the gold bracelet, and take home $277,519 in first-place prize money.

Day 3 started with 27 players spread over the final three tables. The stacked field had Dario Alioto, Eric Crain, Huck Seed, Paul Sokoloff, and Maria Ho but they fell during the day's earlier stages.

Down to two tables and players began hitting the rail: Todd Barlow, Alexander Kostritsyn, George Danzer, Shawn Buchanan, Julie Schneider, and Mike Matusow all missed the final table. And 2010 WSOP Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel became the official final table bubble boy.

When it got to heads-up, Fuhs and George were at war for several hours and also played into an extra level at the end of the night. The chip lead went back and forth and after the final break of the night, Fuhs became the leader and picked up two big scoops in a row. A few hands later George's tournament life was on the line:

Christopher George was on the button and opened with a raise and Danny Fuhs answered with a raise. The two raised each other until George was all-in for 185,000.

George: {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Fuhs: {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

Greg Mueller was sweating his friend Fuhs and he rushed the final table area. The flop came {2-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{Q-Spades} putting Fuhs in the lead. The {J-Diamonds} came off on the turn.

"PAIR THE BOARD!" yelled Mueller.

The dealer put up the {J-Hearts} on the river. Fuhs and his rail went insane. George finished runner-up and took home $171,536.

Danny Fuhs won his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet and talked to Sarah Grant about the victory:
