They met during Poker Masters and have continued to battle ever since! Check out Ali Imsirovic's analysis of this throwback hand against USPO winner Stephen Chidwick on the latest "Run It Back with Remko" exclusive from the PokerGO Studio.
Brandon Adams: / fold
Randy Ohel: / /
Nick Schulman: / /
Picking up the action on fourth street, Nick Schulman bet 30,000 and Randy Ohel burned a time extension before opting to raise to 60,000, which left him just 1,000 back. Both Adams and Schulman called, and then the former folded to a 60,000 bet from the latter on fifth street.
The hands were turned up and Ohel was looking to improve. He failed to do so on sixth, and Schulman was kind enough to show him seventh straight away to see if he was even drawing live. Ohel was but failed to get there as he peeled a useless deuce.
With that, Ohel leaves empty handed while the other three players are now in the money.
Brandon Adams: / /
Chris Vitch: / /
Randy Ohel: / fold
Brandon Adams brought it in for 10,000 and Chris Vitch completed to 30,000. Randy Ohel flatted and then Adams popped it to 60,000. Both his opponents called and then Vitch bet 30,000 on fourth. Both players called and Vitch bet another 30,000 after pairing on fifth.
Ohel folded, Adams called, and it was off to fifth. Adams called a bet of 60,000 and then bet the same amount after Vitch checked sixth. A bet and call on seventh saw Adams and Vitch split the pot with the low and high respectively.
