Closeish but no cash

30/200 in the $10 Stud/8 tournament, 14 away from cashing. 116/567 in the $2 Omaha/8 tournament, about 50 away from cashing. Nothing dramatic, I just got short-stacked with a questionable hand or two and limped along until I was out.

Here is the hand I love best from the Omaha tourney:

The collection of hands here that call here: a second-nut flush; a pair of eights with 82 low; and a counterfeited A3, maybe he thought two pair would be good? Too bad nobody had a set of 3's or 5's. I love having the nut flush + redraws. Maybe I should have check/raised the flop, the odds that somebody was looking for that flush were good.

I had rolled-up 7s in the Stud tourney that worked out well. I raised to enter and a J called. I 'bricked' 4th with a Q and he checked behind with a 3. I checked 5th as well (my 8 and his T), he bet, and I raised. He called the rest of the way down with jacks and tens.
