James Van Alstyne

Omaha Hi-Lo

James Van Alstyne raised in the small blind and Anatolii Zyrin called.

Van Alstyne bet on a flop of {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} and Zyrin called again.

The turn came {j-Diamonds} and Van Alstyne checked. Zyrin bet and Van Alstyne had fewer than two big bets behind. He thought for a moment and then pushed forward all his remaining chips. Zyrin immediately called.

Van Alstyne held {j-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} but he found the bad news as Zyrin opened {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades} for a superior flush draw and a higher pair.

The {7-Spades} river gave both players the flush and Van Alstyne was eliminated in 3rd place, paving the way for a heads-up match between Zyrin and Yueqi Zhu.
