Things Not Going Well for Thater

Katja Thater

Omaha 8/b

Katja Thater, a member of PokerStars Team Pro Germany and a bracelet winner in the 2007 $1,500 Razz event, has been having a tough time of it here today. She's seated in the Blue Section at a table with David Sklansky and Ylon Schwartz and has slipped to 2,700 in chips after a recent hand.

The pot was contested five ways to the turn, {2-Spades} {k-Clubs} {5-Spades} {9-Clubs}. Action checked all the way to Schwartz on the button, who bet. The small blind then check-raised and was called by three players, including Thater and Schwartz. On a river of {a-Diamonds}, the small blind was all in for his last 75 chips. Each other player just called the 75.

At showdown, Thater, the Team Pro, couldn't beat aces up, {a-Spades} {9-Spades} {7-Diamonds} {2-Hearts} for high, nor could she beat {j-Clubs} {j-Spades} {7-Spades} {6-Spades} for low. She dropped her cards into the center of th table with a resigned look.
