Event #11: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship

Steinberg Scoops a Big One

[user66118] • Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

Jason Steinberg raised to open the pot, and he was called by both Guillaume Rivet and Mikael Thuritz.

The flop brought {9-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} {6-Spades}, and Thuritz checked from the big blind. Steinberg bet, both opponents called, and the {10-Diamonds} appeared on fourth street. Steinberg bet again, but this time Rivet raised to 160,000. Thuritz thought long and hard before passing, and Steinberg called for the river.

It was the {J-Clubs}, and Steinberg check-called one last bet. He showed {7-Diamonds} {10-Spades} {J-Hearts} {A-Hearts} for the jack-high straight, and it was good. Rivet flashed a {6-} {7-} for the bad straight, and Steinberg scoops up that big pot. He should be around the million-chip mark now; we'll go count him down now.
