Event #55: The $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Ohel Heads South

Chad_Holloway • Level 7

Pot-Limit Omaha

Rory Mathews opened for 2,500 from early position and received a call from Randy Ohel in middle position. Daniel Harmetz then three-bet to 11,700 from the button, the small blind folded and Cole South four-bet the size of the pot, making it an additional 29,200. Mathews quickly folded and then Ohel, who was short, thought for about a minute before calling off for 24,200.

Harmetz folded and Ohel was excited. "I'm getting a good price now," he exclaimed.

Ohel: {9-Spades}{7-Spades}{8-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
South: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The {3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{q-Spades} flop pair Ohel's queen, but he needed some more help to overcome South's aces. The {9-Clubs} turn allowed him to do just that by giving him two pair, but the {4-Spades} river counterfeited him by giving South aces and fours. With that, Ohel exited the tournament area.
