Pot-Limit Omaha

Justin Liberto raised to 45,000 and was called by Marco Johnson in the cutoff. On a flop of {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, Liberto continued for 40,000 to earn a call and then bet the {5-Spades} turn for 170,000. Johnson moved all-in and Liberto called without asking for the stack size.

Marco Johnson: {10-Spades}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Justin Liberto: {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Both players had trips nines and Johnson had an additional flush draw to go with it. However, Liberto was the one that filled up with the {j-Diamonds} river to eliminate Johnson in 12th place for $9,719.
