Matthew Ashton

Pot-Limit Omaha

Matthew Ashton won this event last year to put his name on the map for good, but this year things didn't go so well for him. Ashton came into the day with a ton of chips, but doubling up Phil Ivey cost him early on and just now his last chips went to John Monnette.

Ashton raised to 5,000 and Monnette called in position after which the flop brought out {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. Ashton bet pot, which was 15,000, and Monnette did not waste a lot of time before putting in a raise to 50,000.

Ashton tanked for quite a bit before calling all in for 37,000 and the cards were turned face up.

Monnette: {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Ashton: {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

The turn brought the {4-Hearts} and the river the {8-Spades} knocking Ashton out as Monnette raked in the pot.
