Pot-Limit Omaha 8 or Better

On a flop of {7-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}, Scott Abrams faced a pot-sized bet of 900,000 from Bradley Anderson. Abrams chose to go with his hand and moved all in for over 2,200,000. Anderson called and was on the verge of victory.

Scott Abrams: {10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Bradley Anderson: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

"I need help," said Abrams as his low draw wasn't as good as Anderson's and he trailed his ace-high as well.

"That'll help," said Abrams as the {5-Spades} rolled off on the turn to give Abrams an eight-high straight.

Things got even better for him as the {a-Clubs} fell on the river to counterfeit Anderson's low as well and give Abrams the full pot for a critical double-up.
