Only Two Hands Can Beat Herm

In Event #62: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha, the 990-entry field was down to approximately 30 players remaining in Level 27 (14,000/28,000) when Mark "Beanboozled" Herm (lead image) raised to 64,724 from middle position and was called by Daniel "RussianBot1" Hindin on the button. Both blinds folded and Herm bet 50,505 on the {j-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop. He was called and then check-called a bet of 89,912 from Hindin on the {9-Hearts} turn.

After the {5-Spades} appeared on the river, Herm check-raised from 214,507 to 429,014 only to see Hindin jam for slightly more than what he had in total. Herm called off and was shown the bad news as Hindin tabled {a-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a straight flush while Herm held {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} for jacks full.

Only two hands – quad fives and the aforementioned straight flush – could beat Herm’s top full house, and unfortunately for him, Hindin had one of them. Just like that Herm was eliminated from the tournament while Hindin went on to finish in 11th place for $12,960.

Negreanu’s Streak Comes to an End

Daniel Negreanu

Coming into Event #62, Daniel Negreanu had cashed every tournament since Event 53. He was looking to make it 10 in a row, but a pretty rough cooler halted him in his tracks.

It took place in Level 14 (1,400/2,800) when Negreanu raised it up to 5,600 on the button and Kamal "hki23" Huseynov three-bet to 19,600 in the small blind, which Negreanu called.

On a flop of {a-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, Huseynov bet 42,000 and called the shove of Negreanu for 73,564 in total.

Daniel Negreanu: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}
Kamal "hki23" Huseynov: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

Negreanu had top pair with top kicker, plus the nut flush and a wheel draw. Meanwhile, Huseynov had bare kings.

The {j-Spades} turn gave Huseynov outs to a straight but he instead spiked the case {k-Clubs} on the river to eliminate Negreanu in spectacular fashion.
