Event #54: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship

Paul Leckey Triples

Shamus • Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

With about 45,000 chips already in the middle and the board reading {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Clubs}, Paul Leckey shoved from the hijack for 31,600, Micah Smith reshoved from the cutoff, and Kurt Fruchtman called from the button to put both players at risk.

Leckey had {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Smith {Q-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, meaning Leckey had top set, and while Smith had a wrap, Leckey's open-ended straight draw meant that some of Smith's outs would result in a chop. Meanwhile Fruchtman's hand was missed in the rapid action, though he was well behind Leckey, too.

The {5-Hearts} turn gave Leckey the nut boat and left both of his opponents in even worse shape, and the {Q-Hearts} river meant Leckey tripled while Smith won the side pot against Fruchtman.
