Event #53: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better

McLaughlin Scoops It All

[user340093] • Nível 14: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante

Sporting a jersey of the NHL's Washington Capitals, Robert McLaughlin flatted a 8,400-raise from Andrew Muirhead, who was ready to gamble for his remaining stack from early position.

But small blind Lee Armstrong reraised pot, making it 36,000. Muirhead had no trouble calling his last 1,900, but McLaughlin was facing a tough decision. He called after a moment.

The flop fell {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Armstrong moved all in. McLaughlin called for his last 15,000 or so and the hole cards were turned up.

Muirhead: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades}
McLaughlin: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
Armstrong: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

The turn was a low card, giving a chance for a split pot, but the {6-} on the river double-paired the board and McLaughlin scooped it all. He rocketed up to 120,000, eliminating Muirhead and clipping Armstrong.
