Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better

Kessler Secures the High; Binger & Rabtsov Quartered


With around 65,000 in the pot and a board reading {7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, Nick Binger checked from the big blind and Kirill Rabtsov checked behind from the under-the-gun position. Allen Kessler was on the button an bet 60,000. Binger called, Rabtsov moved all in, and Kessler called. Binger then moved all in himself, which Kessler also called.

Binger: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Kessler: {K-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}{A-Spades}
Rabtsov: {A-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}{K-Spades}

It was a massive pot with chips spread out everywhere. When the {Q-Diamonds} hit the river, it was determined that Kessler would receive 1/2 the pot, or approximately 336,000, while both Binger and Rabtsov got quartered.
