McCormick Over Mathews

Level 5

Pot-Limit Omaha

Rory Mathews raised to 1,600 from middle position and got two callers — Tom McCormick sitting one seat over, and Paul Volpe playing from the small blind.

The flop came {4-Spades}{A-Hearts}{8-Clubs}, and when checked to Mathews continued for 3,000. McCormick soon announced he was raising the pot, and it was determined his bet was for 15,600. Volpe folded, and after thinking a bit Mathews called.

The turn was the {7-Spades}, and Mathews didn't hesitate before betting the pot himself, a bet of 46,800. McCormick quickly called.

The river was the {A-Diamonds}. This time Mathews checked, and McCormick leaned forward and said he was all in, pushing his remaining 35,000 or so forward.

That sent Mathews deep into the tank, and after a couple of minutes he folded his {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} face up.

"Well, of course you had that," said McCormick as he collected the chips.
