Sam Khouiss Eliminated in 2nd Place (AU$26,402)

[user80015] • Level 19
Sam Khouiss - 2nd place

Pot-Limit Omaha

Rory Young limped the button and Sam Khouiss tossed in three blue 5,000-denomination chips indicating a raise of pot. Young called the 7,200 total before he bet out 12,000 on the {5-Hearts}{6-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop with Khouiss check-calling.

The turn landed the {Q-Diamonds} and following a check from Khouiss, Young splashed the pot with a bet of 40,000. Khouiss ummed and ahhed for a few moments before dropping in a stack of chips to indicate he was calling all-in for his last 35,800.

Khouiss: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}
Young: {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

With Young holding top pair and a flush draw, he would need to fade Khouiss' double gutshot straight draw and outs to a better two-pair and trips.

The dealer burned and turned the {10-Clubs} on the river to see Khouiss improve to two-pair while simultaneously improving Young's hand to a set to send the Australian poker stalwart to the rail in 2nd place for an AU$26,402 payday.
