Pot-Limit Omaha

Johannes Becker raised on the button to 480,000 and called a repot from Elior Sion. The flop came {q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}, and Sion asked how much Becker had left. It was about 6.5 million. Sion slid in 3 million and called when Becker jammed.

Sion: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{2-Spades}
Becker: {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

Becker had a pile of outs with a combo draw and a pair against the kings of Sion. The turn was a {q-Clubs}, closing off some outs for Becker. However, he hit the {8-Diamonds} river to make a flush and double.
