Event #28: $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha

Proulx's Great Escape


Another half-dozen hands and L.J. Klein had successfully chipped away further at Miguel Proulx's stack, moving up to 3.54 million versus Proulx's 985,000.

Then came a hand in which Klein opened with a raise to 125,000 from the small blind/button, and Proulx reraised to 375,000. Klein thought a half-minute, then said he was reraising enough to put Proulx all in, and Proulx called.

Proulx {K-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{Q-}{3-Clubs}
Klein {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{4-Spades}{4-Clubs}

The flop came {4-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{A-Hearts}, giving Klein a set of fours. It appeared the end was near. But the {Q-Spades} dramatically arrived on the turn, giving Proulx the better set. The river was the {J-Clubs}, and Proulx doubles back all of the way to 2 million, not far behind Klein's 2.4 million!
