Event #41: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha (Six Handed)

Pescatori and Farha River to Stay Alive

We just stumbled on one of the pots of the tournament. Max Pescatori had moved all in pre-flop and was waiting on Daniel Alaei and Sammy Farha to do business on a flop of {8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}. With a main pot of 40,000 locked up, both players then moved all in, creating a side pot worth just over 80,000 in chips.

Alaei: {6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Pescatori: {7-Spades}{a-Spades}{3-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Farha: {4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{q-Spades}

Alaei had both players covered and led after the flop with a pair of eights. The {J-Spades} missed everyone on the turn, but it would be the {9-Spades} on the river that helped both the players that were at risk. Pescatori rivered the nut flush to take the main pot, while Farha had also rivered a smaller flush to take down the monster side pot.
