Hennigan Scratched

Pot-Limit Omaha

The action folded around to the player in the hijack position who raised before the flop; John Hennigan called from the button, as did Travis Erdman from the small blind, as well as the big blind, to go four ways into a flop that read {2-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}.

Erdman opened for 4,000 and both the big blind and hijack folded, but Hennigan called to make it heads-up to the turn of the {3-Hearts}. Erdman bet 10,000, Hennigan snap-shoved and Erdman insta-called, rolling up {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{J-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Hennigan rolled his eyes and furiously mucked his hand, with one of his cards accidentally covering the river card.

Not that it mattered - we can only presume that Hennigan knew he was drawing dead and after the chip stacks were sized up, Hennigan came up short and thus lost his tournament life.
