Cates Take an Early Final Table Pot

• Level 21: 80,000-160,000, 0 ante

Pot-Limit Omaha

Dan Cates raised to 100,000 from the cutoff, and David Oppenheim called in the small blind, as did John Esposito in the big blind.

The {9-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{q-Hearts} flop was checked to Cates, who bet 125,000. Oppenheim called and Esposito folded.

The {4-Clubs} turn was checked through to the {j-Clubs} river, where both players checked again, and Cates tabled {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for aces up. Oppenheim mucked.
