Event #53: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

Couden Drags a Monster Pot with Flush over Flush

Jan_Kores • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante
Joey Couden

Joey Couden raised to 180,000 in the cutoff and only small blind Mike Matusow called.

The {K-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop was checked by both players but Couden fired 300,000 on the {8-Hearts} turn. Matusow cut out calling chips and put them in front of him.

Couden fired again when the {Q-Clubs} hit the river, announcing a bet of 775,000. Matusow took about a minute and then called.

"Nut flush," Couden quickly declared, exposing {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for the nuts. Matusow said he had a queen-high flush and dropped to about 230,000 while Couden sky-rocketed to 3.4 million.
