Event #49: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship

Hughes Doubles Through Wong

simkha • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante
Ryan Hughes

Jerry Wong raised to 300,000 from early position, Ryan Hughes three-bet to 1.05 million from the button, and Wong called.

The flop came {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and Wong checked. Hughes bet 325,000 and Wong called.

The turn brought the {4-Hearts} and both players checked.

The {2-Hearts} fell on the river, and after some thought, Wong shoved. Hughes had 1.25 million behind and Wong had him covered by a wide margin. After going deep into the tank for about five minutes, Hughes ultimately called.

Wong tabled {J-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} for a stone cold bluff and Hughes flipped over {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{10-Clubs} to take the pot with aces up for a full double-up.
