Event #35: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha / Six Handed

1.2 Million Pot


Greg Brooks raised to 42,000 from the cutoff and received calls from Hans Winzeler on the button and Steven Merrifield in the big blind. Merrifield checked the {7-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{J-Diamonds} flop, prompting Brooks to continuation bet 73,000. Winzeler then woke up with a reraise to 365,000, Merrifield folded, and Brooks three-bet. Winzeler didn't have much left and committed it to the pot.

Winzeler: {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Brooks: {J-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}

Both players had flopped the nut straight, but both had redraws. The {Q-Diamonds} turn filled Winzeler's flush and left Brooks looking either for a jack or eight on the river. The crowd was on its feet as the dealer burned and put out the inconsequential {2-Spades}. Winzeler doubled to over 1.2 million while Brooks was left with just 289,000.
