Event #42: $600 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em / Pot-Limit Omaha Deepstack

Ashish Ahuja Eliminated in 5th Place ($48,914)

KaleGozer • Level 38: 400,000-800,000, 800,000 ante
Ashish Ahuja

Pot-Limit Omaha

In the final hand before the break, Ashish Ahuja raised to 2,500,000 on the button. Dan Matsuzuki three-bet pot to 8,300,000 from the small blind, Rainer Kempe folded, and Ahuja went into the tank.

The other players had already walked off the stage, leaving just the pair to play it out. Matsuzuki sat stoically, arms crossed, while Ahuja had a decision to make for all his chips.

After several minutes, Ahuja decided to four-bet shove all in for 9,800,000 and Matsuzuki quickly called off the extra chips.

Ashish Ahuja: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{9-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Dan Matsuzuki: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{q-Spades}{3-Diamonds}

Ahuja was quite behind from the start but picked up equity on the {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop. The {6-Spades} on the turn provided even more outs to survive, but the river {4-Diamonds} was a blank and Ahuja was gone in fifth place.
