Event #50: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Scott Mandel Eliminated in 5th Place ($122,455)

Scott Mandel - 5th Place

Chance Kornuth and Scott Mandel were heads up to a raised flop. It came {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}{3-Clubs}, and Mandel checked. Kornuth checked behind to see the {8-Diamonds} on the turn. This time, Mandel bet out 100,000. "How much do you have behind?" Chance asked him.

Kornuth moved his arm from in front of his stack in response. "It hasn't changed."

Chance potted, and they got it all in in under ten seconds. "One out," Mandel said when he saw the bad news.

Mandel: {3-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for a set of treys
Kornuth: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Spades} for a set of eights

Earlier today, Danny Wong was eliminated from the $25k six-max tournament when his set of eights was rivered by an opponent whose set of threes rivered quads. Could it happen again here? The {7-Clubs} on the river said no, and Mandel was sent home in fifth place. Kornuth has even more chips now, with 3.3 million of the 6.9 million in play.
