Event #85: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed

Joseph Cheong Eliminated in 6th Place ($64,722); Ka Kwan Lau Eliminated in 5th Place ($90,674)

• Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante
Joseph Cheong

Joseph Cheong opened with a pot-sized raise to 210,000 from the cutoff and Ka Kwan Lau three-bet to 720,000 on the button. Evangelos Kokkalis four-bet all in for 3,280,000 in the small blind and both Cheong and Lau stuck in the last of their chips as well.

Joseph Cheong: {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Ka Kwan Lau: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Evangelos Kokkalis: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}

An action flop of {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} hit the felt providing each of the players with a little bit of something. However, the {q-Clubs} on the turn gave Kokkalis a straight, leaving both of his opponents drawing extremely thin. The {6-Diamonds} on the river only improved Kokkalis to a straight, eliminating both Cheong and Lau.
