Event #50: $2,500 10-Game Mix (Six Handed)

Scott Abrams Eliminated in 5th Place ($39,564)

Shamus • Level 24
Scott Abrams - 5th Place

Pot-Limit Omaha

The first hand of the second PLO round of the final table saw Scott Abrams raise to 35,000 from under the gun, then Sebastian Saffari reraise to 95,000 from the small blind, forcing a fold from Philip Sternheimer in the big blind. Abrams called with his remaining chips and the pair tabled their cards.

Abrams: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Saffari: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

"Ace from space!" cried Abrams's rail, and when the flop came {10-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} their initial reaction was positive, but then they saw Saffari had flopped a straight. The turn was the {K-Spades}, leaving Abrams with still a few outs for possible survival. But the river was the {6-Hearts}, and Abrams left the stage with a fifth-place finish.
