Event #22: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha

Juha Vilkki Veering Toward Chip Lead

After everyone had folded around to Juha Villki on the button, he opted to raise and made it 6,000 for the blinds to see the flop. The small blind folded, but the Big Blind decided to reraise and was all in. Vilkki took his time decding if he wanted to call the extra 16,000. Vilkki made it clear his hand wasn't very strong and he had gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Vilkki convinced himself it wasn't much more and he made the call.

Cards were turned over and Vilkki was behind with his {4-}{5-}{J-}{9-}. His opponent held {3-}{Q-}{Q-}{9-} and had a slight lead going to the flop.

The three cards that came out were the {9-}{J-}{8-} giving Vilkki two pair right off the bat. A turn {6-} was no help to the Big Blind as his pair of queens trailed. A river {A-} put the last nail in the Big Blind's coffin and he was eliminated.
