Event #42: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship
Days: 4

Sami Kelopuro Eliminated in 2nd Place ($503,173)

Level 29 : 50,000-100,000, 0 ante
Sami Kelopuro - 2nd place
Sami Kelopuro - 2nd place

Sami Kelopuro opened to 240,000 on the button and Ben Lamb defended his big blind.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and Lamb check-called a bet of 275,000. The {Q-Spades} hit the turn and Lamb checked again. Kelopuro fired 675,000, to which Lamb responded by raising the pot. Kelopuro took a deep breath before re-raising all in, getting a quick call from Lamb.

Kelopuro: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Lamb: {6-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

Kelopuro, with top two pair, had a lot of outs to fade as Lamb held massive draws to a wheel and a flush. He got there with a wheel on the river when the {5-Diamonds} fell, eliminating Kelopuro in second place.
