Event #42: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

Sexton's Stack Sliced in Half

• Level 8: 400-800, 0 ante

After a series of preflop raises, Mike Sexton flatted a 25,000 bet from his lone opponent in the hi-jack position. Before the dealer could deal the flop, Sexton's opponent announced he was going all in for his remaining chips blind.

The flop came {2-Clubs}{3-Spades}{J-Hearts} and Sexton called.

Sexton: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Opponent: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{3-Clubs}

"I didn't expect you to come up with that hand!" Sexton exclaimed.

The {9-Hearts} turn and {7-Spades} river did not improve Sexton, whose stack was knocked down to 75,000.
