Day 3 Completed
Sometimes, even in pot-limit Omaha, all you need is a pair of fives.
That's all Joel "Odonkor1" Nordkvist showed down when he was all in three-handed in PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker-93-M: $1,050 PLO [6-Max, PLO Main Event], $750K Gtd. Luckily for him, his opponent Nuno "BrigaDatada" Capucho had paired his own five but with a kicker that didn't match Nordkvist's ace, so the Swede doubled into a slight chip lead.
An hour later, he'd outlasted Capucho and busted Ramon "ZéDoBlefe11" Sorgatto heads up to win his first SCOOP title and $153,356.
Sorgatto was denied a second win — he'd previously won 31-M: $215 NL Hold'em [4-Max] for $50K back in 2016.

Nordkvist started the day in the upper half of the counts and scored the first KO before moving into the chip lead thanks to three streets of value with kings full of aces.
As the likes of Connor "blanconegro" Drinan and Benjamin "bencb789" Rolle fell before the seven-handed final table, it was Capucho and Sorgatto who had the clear top two stacks, though. The former put a nasty beat on former EPT champ Julian "jutrack" Track when 6% equity came home after the flop.
After the two short stacks busted, four-handed play proved swingy. Former leader Capucho sank to a short stack but doubled through Nordkvist in a flip. After busting "javel," he had more than half of the chips three-handed.
However, Nordkvist found the big double after four-betting an ace-high double-suited rundown and besting the weaker double-suited gapper of Capucho with the aforementioned pair of fives they both flopped.
That gave Nordkvist a slight chip lead and he just took over from there. The only hairy moment came heads up when Sorgatto doubled through him in a flip and nearly evened the stacks. Nordkvist won the next flip, though, and that was that.
