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

Mortensen Getting Low

• Level 8: 400-800, 0 ante

Carlos Mortensen opened to 1,800 from early position and was called by the player in the hi-jack and the big blind.

The big blind checked to Mortensen on the {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{A-Hearts} flop and Mortensen c-bet for 3,000. The hi-jack player mucked but the big blind called.

Both players tapped the table when the {K-Spades} fell on the turn. When a {6-Clubs} completed the board, Mortensen's opponent said, "I cheeeeeck," to which Mortensen replied, "Check's good."

Mortensen's opponent flipped over {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Mortensen mucked.

Mortensen is down to just 16,000.
