Event #42: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed High Roller

Ben Yu Eliminated in 2nd Place ($866,924)

zedmaster84 • Level 31: 150,000-300,000, 0 ante

Ben Yu raised the pot to 900,000 and Shaun Deeb three-bet the pot to 2.7 million. Yu, who had a stack of around 6.4 million, called, and the flop came {5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Deeb bet the pot and Yu called all in.

Ben Yu: {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Shaun Deeb: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Deeb was in the lead with his pair of aces, but Yu had plenty of outs with a straight and flush draw. Fives and sixes were live, too, but the {2-Clubs} turn and {8-Spades} river failed to improve Yu to send him to the rail in second place for $866,924. Yu narrowly missed out on his third bracelet, while Deeb completed that exact feat and took revenge for his runner-up finish to Yu in the 2017 WSOP Event #34: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship.

A recap of today's action is to follow.
