Event 58: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Su Wins Massive Pot to Eliminate Both Gualtieri & Bach

David Bach

We just saw a massive pot develop preflop between Stephen Su and David Bach, with a short-stacked Joe Gualtieri caught in between. The preflop action escaped us, but we do know that Bach got his stack of around 70,000 all in and was snap-called by Su.

Su: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Bach: {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{7-Clubs}
Gualtieri: {A-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{J-Clubs}

The {Q-Spades}{2-Spades}{8-Spades} flop kept Su in the lead with his pair of aces, but both his opponents held low draws. The {8-Hearts} turn was kind to Su as it kept him in the lead and paired the board, but it'd be the {9-Hearts} on the river that would avoid a low and allow him to scoop the approximately 160,000 pot. Both Gualitieri and Bach seemed a little stunned as they exited the tournament floor while Su was understandably all smiles.
