Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better

Two Pair No Good When Your Opponent Has a Flush


It was folded around to Jason Steinberg in the hijack who raised to 2,800 only to get three-bet by Jeff Kimber who was next to act. Steinberg made the call and then fired out 18,000 after quite some thought on the {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop. Kimber quickly raised enough to put Steinberg all in for the 10,000 or so he had left who called.

Kimber: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Steinberg: {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}

Both players had low draws but Kimber was ahead with his pair of aces for the time being and stayed ahead when the {K-Hearts} hit the turn that gave him a flush draw as well. The river was the {10-Hearts} which gave Steinberg two pair but also provided Kimber with his flush as Steinberg slammed the table and was eliminated.
