Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better

West Survives An Early All In

• Level 9: 400-800, 0 ante

Tim West came into today with just 4,100, or equal to 5 big blinds, so we knew he would get involved early. We went over to his table, and saw that Daniel Alaei, Alex Freiberg, and Jean Said had all limped in preflop, and West checked in the big blind. The flop came out {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{k-Clubs}, and after checking his cards again, West threw in the rest of his chips. Alaei folded, but Freiberg annouced pot. Said got out of the way, and the players flipped their cards up.

West: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Freiberg: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{k-Spades}{7-Hearts}

"Of course" is all that West could say, as he saw that despite flopping the nuts, he would still have to dodge the flush draw. The turn came the {6-Spades}, and the river came the {k-Diamonds}. West made sure that his opponent didn't fill up on the river, and gladly took in the 1,000 chips he split with Freiberg.
