Event #63: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Cowen Triples Up, Aldridge Fails to Ladder

blaisebourgeois • Niveau 27: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante
Robert Cowen

Ken Aldridge opened the action to 300,000 from the hijack and Eli Elezra raised to 600,000 from the cutoff.

Robert Cowen claimed to have a "shit hand" but had to go for it and called from the button with just 25,000 behind.

Aldridge, seemingly content on hoping for a ladder, folded despite having just 310,000 behind.

Both Elezra and Cowen pitched in the last 25,000 on the {10-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{k-Hearts} flop.

Robert Cowen: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
Eli Elezra: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}

Cowen had flopped the straight and had a redraw to the flush while Elezra was nearly dead.

The {9-Diamonds} on the turn had Cowen win the pot, while the {8-Clubs} completed the board.
