Event #51: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Nicholas Seiken Finds an Ace on the River to Stay Alive

Valerie.Cross • Level 3: 150-300, 0 ante

Mark Herm had a T$1,000-chip in front of him in late position and Nicholas Seiken raised to 2,100 in the cutoff. Tommy Chen, who just came second in the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship, called on the button. The blinds folded and Herm came along.

The flop was {A-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Herm checked. Seiken bet 6,000, Chen called, and Herm folded. They went heads up to the {9-Diamonds} turn and Seiken went all in for around 3,000. Chen snap-called and was in good position to scoop and eliminate Seiken.

Chen: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}
Seiken: {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Chen had the nut low along with a set of sixes for the best high, but the {A-Clubs} river gave Seiken aces full of sixes to chop it up.
