Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Oliver Loses Huge Pot; Eliminated Right After

Chris Oliver

We didn't catch the betting, but we do know that Amir Lehavot and Chris Oliver created a pot worth 640,000 on a flop of {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Oliver had flopped top two pair with {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} while Lehavot had the nut flush draw with {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}.

With the chip lead at stake, the {10-Clubs} spiked on the turn to give Lehavot the said flush; however, Oliver could still boat up on the river with any queen or king. Unfortunately for the one-time chip leader, the {4-Hearts} blanked and he lost the massive pot.

A couple hands later, Toby Lewis raised to 13,000 from the cutoff and Oliver reraised from the button. They ended up getting the money all in with Oliver at risk for his last 82,000.

Oliver: {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Lewis: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}

The board ran out {K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Oliver was eliminated from the tournament.
