Event #3: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better

A Perfect River for Phan

• Level 11: 500-1,000, 0 ante

A hand developed between 2010 $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship Runner-Up Vladimir Shchemelev and John Phan.

With the board reading {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Clubs}Phan in middle position opened the turn for 2000, Shchemelev on the button raised to 4000 and Phan called.

The river came {9-Diamonds}, Phan bet 2000, Shchemelev raised, and Phan put in a third bet to make it 6000. Shchemelev seemed hesitant to do so, but made the call.

Phan showed {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{A-Clubs} for the rivered nut straight. Shchemelev looked disgusted as he mucked and the hand put Phan up around 27,000
