Event #19: $565 Pot-Limit Omaha

Li Doubles Through Zimmerman

simkha • Level 30: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante
Ilian Li

Ilian Li raised to 280,000 from middle position and Seth Zimmerman called from the big blind. He bet in the dark to put Li to a decision for the remainder of his chips before the dealer fanned out the {8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop. Li, who only had 335,000 to start the hand, called to put himself at risk.

Ilian Li: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Seth Zimmerman: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

While Zimmerman's hand had been best preflop, Li had taken the lead with flopped two pair. The {7-Clubs} turn put Zimmerman back out in front, but the {9-Diamonds} river meant Li would take the pot with a nine-high straight to double up.
