A Few for Hastings

Level 11

Pot-Limit Omaha

Preflop action left three players, Bill Chen (big blind), Fabrice Soulier (under the gun), and Brian Hastings (middle position), to see a flop come {K-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. It checked to Hastings who bet 17,000, Chen folded, and Soulier called. The turn was the {2-Clubs}. Soulier checked again, Hastings bet 50,000 this time, and Soulier called.

The river brought the {9-Diamonds} and checks from both. Hastings turned over {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} for top two, and Soulier mucked. Hastings has 435,000 now, while Soulier drops to 190,000.
