Event #14: $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi-Low

Puchkov Scoops Big Pot

• Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Daniel Hirleman opened the action for a raise and had three players, Konstantin Puchkov, Alex Luneau, and Michael Hack, in that order, call him. The flop came {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and Luneau led out and was raised by Hack. Hirleman folded and Puchkov and Luneau both called.

The turn was the {8-Spades} and Luneau checked to Hack who bet. Puchkov put in a raise and was called by both players.

The river was the {5-Clubs} and Luneau and Hack checked to Puchkov who bet. Luneau folded and Hack muttered to himself "couldn't pair the board one time." Puchkov looked at him and said "fold this hand." Hack didn't listen, instead deciding to make the call. He probably wished he hadn't as Puchkov had the nuts with {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}.

"Set and flush draw," said Hack. "Unbelievable."
