Event #65: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Vitch Three-Quarters Strebkov in Final Hand

KaleGozer • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

In the final hand of the night, Michael McKenna folded under the gun with just 65,000 in chips and will have to come back tomorrow with less than one big blind. Chris Vitch limped in from middle position and Denis Strebkov checked his option.

The flop was {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and Strebkov check-called 60,000 from Vitch. The turn brought the {7-Hearts} and Strebkov checked. Vitch bet 200,000, Strebkov check-raised pot, Vitch shipped it in and Strebkov called.

Chris Vitch: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Denis Strebkov: {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts}

"Wow," Strebkov said upon seeing the showdown. The river was the {j-Clubs} to give Vitch the nut flush to win the high. Both players had the nut low and Vitch took three-quarters of the pot to end the day on a high note.
