2011 World Series of Poker

Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better
Days: 2

"Straight Flush"

Level 9 : 400-800, 0 ante

Action folded to David Williams in the cutoff and he put in a raise to 2,000, which Tobias Reinkemeier called from the button. Both blinds got out of the way and it was heads up to the {4-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} flop. Williams checked, Reinkemeier bet 3,700, Williams check-raised all in for 16,100, and Reinkemeier made the call.

Reinkemeier: {A-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{J-Clubs}
Williams: {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

The {J-Spades} turn left Williams in bad shape as Reinkemeier had hit two pair; not only that, the latter had a higher flush draw and a better low draw. The dealer burned and put out the {3-Hearts}. Williams realized Reinkemeier hit his low and had an ace-high flush, so he stood to make his exit.

"Straight flush," Mike Matusow proclaimed. Sure enough, Williams had hit a straight flush to lay claim to the high hand and half the pot. In the end it was a chop, but it was a fairly exciting one at that.
