Pot-Limit Omaha

After Esther Taylor limped from the button, Aden Salazar potted from the small blind. After a fold from Sandeep Pulusani, Taylor repotted. Salazar made the call to go all in and the cards were on their backs.

Aden Salazar: {a-Spades}{10-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
Esther Taylor: {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Salazar was in poor shape, roughly a 2:1 dog to survive against Taylor's double suited aces. The {9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop offered no help. The {q-Spades} turn brought about a bit of hope as he picked up a flush draw, but the {6-Clubs} river locked up the pot for Taylor.

For Salazar, who is just 21 years old and attending his first WSOP, this was his second final table, and he will depart in third place for a six-figure score.
