Event #15: $1,150 No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha

Doug Corning Eliminated in 3rd Place ($15,915)

Doug Corning

Doug Corning was chipped down to only 10 big blinds early in the level while Mohammed Afiouni took a pot off Daniel Hachem in Pot-Limit Omaha to increase the lead with a flush.

Then, Hachem raised from the button and Corning jammed for 120,000 with Hachem making the call for one third of his stack.

Corning: {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Hachem: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

The flop {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} already improved Hachem to a pair of aces and Corning failed to improve with the {K-Clubs} turn and {8-Spades} river. He takes home a payday of $A15,915 while two Aussies will determine the next winner of a LK Boutique championship ring.

Both players then took a short break and even Tony Hachem showed up on the rail for moral support.
