Event #28: $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha

Catching Katja


A player in middle position raised to 75, and the table folded back around to Team PokerStars Pro Katja Thater who called from the big blind.

Not surprising to see Thater here. The 2007 WSOP $1,500 Razz event winner often plays in the non-hold'em events. Indeed, at the most recent PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Thater won a $1,000 buy-in mixed (8-game) event.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{6-Hearts}. Thater checked, her opponent bet 200, and Thater called. Both players then checked the {A-Diamonds} turn.

The river brought the {4-Clubs}. Thater checked, and her opponent bet 600. The German pro thought for a beat, then made the call. Her opponent tabled {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Spades} for sixes full of aces, and Thater mucked.

Thater quickly tumbles down under 700 on that one, but she still has all three of her "add-on" chips (each worth 2,000) behind.
