Pot-Limit Omaha

Johannes Becker opened the action with a raise to 200,000 in the hijack and he was called by Dan Cates on the button. Taylor Paur then pushed all-in for 400,000 in the small blind, sending Koray Aldemir in the big blind into a frenzy. He carefully checked his stack and opted to call with 500,000 behind.

Both Becker and Cates called and the four players headed to the {10-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Spades} flop. Aldemir checked to Becker, who bet 300,000. Cates then cut out a raise to 1,275,000 and Aldemir mulled it over for half a minute before sigh-calling all-in.

Becker quickly got out of the way and the two short stacks already turned over their cards.

Taylor Paur: {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Koray Aldemir: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

"I have a really good hand," Cates uttered without showing his cards just yet. He was reminded by Becker to turn them over and then flashed the {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts} very much to the disbelief of not only Becker.

The {3-Spades} turn improved Cates to two pair and he held onto the lead on the {6-Clubs} river to eliminate Paur in 7th place and Aldemir in 6th place, ending Day Four.

All final chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.
