Omaha Hi-Lo

Johannes Becker limped in and Elior Sion checked. On the {7-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop, Sion checked and Becker bet. Sion check-raised and Becker called. The {9-Spades} fell on the turn and Sion bet. Becker had less than two big bets behind, gave it brief consideration and moved all in, which Sion quickly called.

Johannes Becker: {Q-Spades}{6-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades} for a flush and low draw
Elior Sion: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Hearts} for a flopped full house

Becker was looking for a low card to chop it up and stay in contention, but instead the {5-Clubs} on the river gave Sion quads instead and Becker was eliminated in 2nd place for a payday of $862,649. The German missed out on his first gold bracelet on the 27th birthday, while Sion has been crowned champion.

A recap of today's action is to follow shortly.
