Event #84: $50,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller

Yu Rivers Flush to Bust Herm

dsalituro • Level 14: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

Mark Herm raised to 35,000 preflop and Ben Yu defended his big blind. The flop came {k-Spades}{j-Spades}{9-Hearts} and Herm got his last 55,000 in the middle.

Mark Herm: {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Ben Yu: {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}

Both players had flopped a king and a straight draw, but Herm was ahead with his queen-kicker. The {j-Diamonds} fell on the turn, followed by the {7-Spades} on the river to make Yu a flush and eliminate the online legend and two-time bracelet winner.
