Event #43: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship

Townsend Gets the Shaft


Roman Yitzhaki was all in on fourth, and Townsend got is last chips in on seventh in another complicated three-way stud-8 pot. Here's how things worked out:

Roman Yitzhaki: {q-Spades}{j-Hearts} / {j-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{10-Hearts} / {k-Hearts} - jacks and tens for the high half of the main pot
Brian Townsend: {a-Spades}{2-Spades} / {7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{k-Spades} / {a-Hearts} - aces for the high half of the side pot
Carlos Mortensen: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} / {10-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{4-Spades} / {6-Diamonds} - six-four low for the low half of both pots

Mortensen profited to move up to 520,000, Yitzhaki improved to 140,000, and Townsend was left with the short end of the stick and 100,000.
