Event #25: $2,500 Omaha/Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low

The Accidental Raise Costs Puchkov

[user153638] • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante

Omaha Hi-Low

Mike Leah opened for 20,000 under the gun and action folded to Konstantin Puchkov in the small blind. The Russian went to call but accidentally tossed in an extra 5,000 chip, which as Matt Glantz pointed out constituted a raise. Puchkov wasn't too happy about it, but as Glantz pointed out rules are rules and "it's nothing personal."

Leah made the call and then Puchkov check-called a bet on the {9-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop. When the {7-Clubs} appeared on the turn, Puchkov led out for 20,000 and Leah called. Puchkov fired another bet on the {7-Diamonds} river, but he couldn't shake Leah.

Puchkov tabled the {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for not much of anything, and Leah took down the pot with his {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts} full house.
