Event #51: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better

Aces Give, Aces Take Away; Liebert Out

Shamus • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Kathy Liebert had just scored that double-up with aces a few hands previously. Soon after she found a couple of aces in her hand again, but this time the result was less fortunate. Players were still reacting a hand later to what had happened, and we received the story from one as follows.

After Marco Oliveira opened for 11,000, Liebert reraised to 36,000 and Oliveira called. The flop came {A-}{K-}{4-} with two hearts, and the pair subsequently got the rest of Liebert's chips in the middle. Liebert held {A-}{A-}{Q-}{Q-} for top set, while Oliveira had {A-}{K-}{J-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for top two and a jack-high flush draw.

The flush came, the board didn't pair and Liebert is out, adding yet another WSOP cash to her impressive resume. Meanwhile, Oliveira adds a number of chips to his impressive stack. He's up around 255,000 at present
