John Esposito Josh Arieh

Pot-Limit Omaha

John Esposito potted for 300,000 from the small blind and Josh Arieh called in the big.

Esposito potted again on the {8-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{7-Hearts} flop, making it 600,000. Arieh responded with a maximum raise and called when Esposito moved all in for 2,840,000.

Esposito: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Arieh: {k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}

Esposito had aces but he was in bad shape against Arieh's two pair. Esposito needed an ace, eight or a runner-runner pair or flush to stay in the tournament.

The {j-Clubs} turn narrowed his outs to eight cards and the {6-Spades} river wasn't any of them.
