Event #39: $2,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em/Omaha

Yancik Climbing



Stewart Yancik got his last 18,200 in preflop against Carsten Joh.

Yancik: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Joh: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

The board was about as dramatic as it could be, the flop giving both players a set when it came {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}. The turn of the {a-Clubs} then gave Yancik quads, but Joh was still live with one out to a royal flush. Luckily for Yancik, the river was the {8-Hearts} and he doubled up to 38,000 while Joh was left with 84,000.
