Event #49: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed

Michael Trujillo Stacks Two at Once

simkha • Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante

The player under the gun opened with a raise to 9,000, Michael Trujillo was next to act and called, and the player in the big blind three-bet to 43,500. The original raiser called to put himself at risk with a stack of approximately 30,000 total, and Trujillo came along, as well.

The flop came {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, and the big blind and Trujillo quickly got the rest of their chips in. All three players tabled their hands.

Big blind: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Under the gun: {8-}{8-}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Trujillo: {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Trujillo was way ahead with his set of nines, and both of his opponents needed help from the deck to survive. The {7-Hearts} turn and {3-Diamonds} river changed nothing, and Trujillo enthusiastically scooped the pot.

"How can I be this drunk and still beat these people?" he asked. "The only thing I can promise is that I'll be at the Rhino in a few hours."
