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

Brenes Puts Us One to the Money

• Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Humberto Brenes opened the action from the button with a raise and both Will Failla from the small blind and Benjamin Kaupp from the big blind called.

The flop was {10-Hearts}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts}, Failla checked and Kaupp bet 60,000. Brenes called all in for less and Failla decided to come along for the full price of the bet.

The turn was the {3-Clubs} and both players with action remaining checked. The river was the {8-Spades} and again, neither player wanted to bet the other out of the hand. Kaupp tabled {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} which was good for the side pot. Brenes could only show {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{x-} and Kaupp scooped the main pot as well.

With that bust out we now sit squarely on the money bubble.
