Michael Moed, the most accomplished player in the field, sees his tournament end when he fails to hit the low against Jordan Chizick who scoops with two pairs.

Moed, who has 5 carer Omaha H/L titles to his credit, settles for a fourth place finish.

“It’s a lot different than No Limit,” says Moed, who has $77,000 in career tournament earnings, “you have to have patience and understand the game, which I think I do pretty well.”

Moed, who recorded two wins at Hard Rock Hollywood in 2013, took a year off from the game to focus on his family. He and his wife Angela are enjoying their first son Lucas, who is now 10 months old.

Moed has also been concentrating on his new business Sweet Time Cupcakes in Miami.

“I’m going to play as much as I can,” says Moed, who until taking time off had been ranked #1 in Omaha H/L by the National Ranking Assoc of Tournament Poker Players (NRATPP); he’s currently #11.

Moed takes home $1,121 for his fourth place finish.
