Event 47: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Sonu Sharma Eliminated in 6th Place ($41,589)

Sonu Sharma - 6th place

Sonu Sharma limped from under the gun plus one only to have Steven Loube raise pot to 106,000 from the button. Tim Finne was in the small blind and inquired with the floor as to whether or not the action would be reopened to Loube if Sharma, who started the hand with 139,000, were to move all in. The answer was no, and Finne made the call. Sharma moved in as expected, and Loube made the call.

When the flop fell {J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{6-Spades}, Finne ended up check-folding to a pot-sized bet, leaving Sharma and Loube to turn up their cards.

Loube: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Hearts}{J-Clubs}
Sharma: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

Loube flopped top two pair but Sharma held a big wrap. Unfortunately for the latter, the {3-Diamonds} turn and {8-Clubs} river would both be dry and he would exit in sixth place for $41,589.
