Dan Cates

Pot-Limit Omaha

John Esposito raised to 130,000 from the hijack, Josh Arieh called in the cutoff, and Dan Cates came along in the big blind.

On the {7-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop, Cates potted it for 415,000, and Esposito folded. Arieh raised the pot, and Cates called off his last 1.33 million.

Dan Cates: {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Josh Arieh: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

Both players had flopped flush and straight draws, but Cates had the lead at the time with his pair of sevens, although Arieh was actually a 60/40 favorite to eliminate Cates. The {2-Clubs} turn gave Arieh the nut flush and ended Cates' run before the {7-Spades} could fall on the river.
