Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Esposito Gets his Jack

GeoffFisk • Level 18: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

Omaha Hi-Lo

John Esposito: {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Chris Vitch: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

Chris Vitch's bet on the turn with the board reading {3-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} put John Esposito at risk, and after making the call Esposito saw that he needed help on the river to stay in the game. He got what he needed when the {j-Hearts} hit, giving him a queen-high straight and eliminating the possibility of a qualifying low.

"There's my guy," Esposito said when the jack hit the board.
