Pot-Limit Omaha

Aaron Schaff made his customary selection: PLO.

Schaff opened under the gun for 23,000 during one of the hands, and Bill Chen called. Daniel Idema came along in the big blind and they took in a flop: {8-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}. Idema moved all in for about 20,000, and Schaff potted. Chen shoved all in behind that, and Schaff called.

Idema: {9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}
Schaff: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{10-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Chen: {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades}{6-Spades}

Idema had flopped an open-ender, while Schaff held tens up. Chen, meanwhile, had flopped better two pair along with a gutshot. The turn was an {a-Clubs}, giving Schaff the lead with top two heading into the final card: {9-Clubs}. Three pair did Chen no good, and Idema had failed to hit either of his straight draws.

Schaff's double knockout means he now has a massive lead three-handed.
