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

Strebkov Doubles Through Schulman

• Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante
Nick Schulman

Joe Hachem raised to 200,000 from under the gun, and Denis Strebkov three-bet to 720,000 on the button. Nick Schulman four-bet the pot in the big blind, enough to cover both opponents, Hachem folded and Strebkov called off his last 65,000.

Denis Strebkov: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Nick Schulman: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Schulman flopped top pair on the {q-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop, but Strebkov held a pair and the nut flush draw. The {5-Diamonds} turn gave Strebkov the flush and left Schulman looking to make a low, but the {j-Spades} river gave Strebkov the double.
