Event #64: $600 Pot-Limit Omaha Deepstack

Merkow Recovers Immediately By Running Down Aces

• Nível 38: 500,000-1,000,000, 1,000,000 ante
Greg Merkow

Gregg Merkow opened to just over 3,000,000 from the cutoff.

"Pretty much committed," said Merkow, as action folded to Konstantin Angelov in the big blind.

Angelov slid in a stack of chips that covered Merkow, who called to put his tournament life at risk.

Konstantin Angelov: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Gregg Merkow: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

"We need clubs bad!" said Markow.

No clubs showed up on the {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop.

"That's not good," said Merkow. "Seven, deuce, or jack," announced the rail.

The {2-Spades} hit the turn to give Merkow two pair and vault him to the lead. The river {q-Clubs} changed nothing and Merkow came from behind to recover with a large pot.
