Pot-Limit Omaha

Stephen Chidwick was in the small blind on his final hand of final-table play, and he raised it up to 72,000. Michael Mizrachi was on the big blind, and he made the call.

The flop came down {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Chidwick bet 60,000, Mizrachi called. On the turn the {3-Hearts} popped up and Chidwick moved all in for his remaining 230,000 chips. Mizrachi called.

Mizrachi showed {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for a flopped full house, and Chidwick was trailing with {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Luke Schwartz shook his head in disbelief as Chidwick was about to be eliminated.

The river was the {3-Diamonds} and Chidwick was gone. He went around the table to shake everyones hand while Mizrachi is now up to over seven million in chips.
