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

Eric Hicks Doubles Through Michael Trujillo

simkha • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Michael Trujillo raised to 25,000 from the button, Eric Hicks called from the small blind, and Louie Calvo called from the big blind.

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and action checked to Trujillo who bet 50,000. Hicks check-raised all in for about 100,000, Calvo folded, and Trujillo called to put Hicks at risk.

Hicks: {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Trujillo: {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Trujillo had the lead with his pair of tens and while both players had flopped flush draws, Hicks' was better. The {J-Diamonds} on the turn paired Hicks' jack to put him in the lead, the {A-Diamonds} river changed nothing, and Hicks took the pot to double up.
