Event #13: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

Wilinofsky Gets Value From Helppi

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 3,500-7,000, 850 ante

After the elimination of Dario Sammartino, Juha Helppi lost a bigger chunk of his stack to Ben Wilinofsky.

It was the Canadian who opened to 21,000 and Helppi called in the small blind. The flop brought {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and Helppi opted to check-call for 17,573. No betting action followed on the {2-Diamonds} turn and Helppi also checked the {6-Diamonds} river. Wilinofsky bet the full pot for 88,396 and Helppi tank-called with {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a straight.

However, Wilinofsky had the nuts with {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} to score a big pot.
