Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Thinh Hits River, Doubles Through Yekell

• Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Chu Thinh opened with a raise to 20,000 from the cutoff and was called by the player sitting on the button and Neil Yekell from the big blind.

Yekell bet 20,000 after a {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop and Thinh jammed for 78,000, the button player folded while Yekell called.

Thinh {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs} flopped an open-ended straight but was far behind the flopped set of Yekell {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

The {3-Diamonds} on the turn was no help for Thinh and he needed to hit the river to stay alive.

The {10-Diamonds} on the river was one of those outs and Thinh doubled up.
