Event #50: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Tieman Takes Down Aces


A player moved all in on a {9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop, and Joshua Tieman called to put him at risk.

Tieman: {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Shorter stack whose aces are about to get cracked: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}X

The {10-Spades} on the turn ended the sweat pretty fast, and after the {7-Clubs} on the river, Tieman's unhappy opponent hit the rail and Tieman moved up to 57,000.

Mercier Gets a Fold


Jason Mercier bet 2,000 on a board reading {7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}, and his opponent check-raised him to 6,000. Mercier looked unphased and quickly moved all in for 7,300 more. The other player definitely wasn't expecting that move. He tanked for four minutes before finding a fold, much to the amusement of the rest of the table.

Boatman Sinks One


Barney Boatman's opponent fired 2,500 after the flop came out {10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Boatman shipped it in, and the other player called with all of his smaller stack.

Boatman: {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Shorty: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The {3-Spades} on the turn was a total blank, but the {8-Diamonds} on the river gave Boatman a flush and the knockout. He's up to 33,000 now.

Grinder Not Kicking Anymore


Michael Mizrachi bet 2,600 on a {k-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop, and his lone opponent called. The turn brought the {7-Spades}, and Mizrachi moved all in. The other player called to put him at risk with {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for the turned straight. Mizrachi's {k-Spades}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} had boat and chop outs, but the {2-Diamonds} wasn't good enough to keep him in the game.

Singer Makes the Call


The floor was just called to David Singer's table. Singer's opponent bet 2,800 on the river, and Singer called, tossing out 2,300. The other player turned up his hand, and Singer went to muck since he couldn't beat it. But when the dealer tried to get the other 500 out of him, Singer said he thought the dealer had announced the bet as 2,300. The floor ruled that Singer had to pay the full amount that the player had moved across the line as a bet. And Singer complied after he was allowed to say his piece.
