Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better

Caridad Doubles with a Six-Card Royal


On a board of {10-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{A-Clubs}, the blinds both checked to John Caridad, who bet 4,200. The small blind then woke up with a check-raise to 8,400, the big blind folded, and Caridad called off for 7,825 total.

Caridad: {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Opponent: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

Caridad was in trouble, but the {9-Clubs} river delivered him salvation. He hit the nut flush to take down the pot and double to nearly 20K. "It's a six-card royal," another player pointed out.
