Biggest Pot Of The Tournament...Oh Wait....Chop Again

[user196664] • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

We had a huge pot just now and were one card away from a heads-up battle, but as is often the case with Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better, we ended up chopping the pot.

David SIngontiko raised it up to 90,000 from the button and Jeffrey Gibralter called.

The flop came down {2-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and Singontiko put out a 225,000 bet. Gibralter called and the two saw a {j-Clubs} turn. Gibralter almost knew his fate was sealed as he pushed all in and got an instant call from Singontiko.

Singontiko: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{3-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Gibralter: {5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{a-Spades}{10-Spades}

Singontiko had a full house and anything but a low river card would mean heads-up play. The river however hit the {7-Hearts} and the two chopped the pot. Gibralter stays alive for now and it's still anyone's game

Singontiko Takes Some More

Shamus • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

Michael Yee folded, David Singontiko completed from the small blind, then Jeffrey Gibralter raised to 100,000 from the big blind. Singontiko made the call.

The flop came {J-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}, and both players checked. The turn was the {3-Spades}. Singontiko checked, and Gibralter didn't waste too much time betting 150,000. Singontiko looked over at Gibralter's stack, then announced he was raising pot to 650,000. Gibralter waited about ten seconds, then pushed his cards dealerward.

More for Singontiko, who moves up over 2.65 million. Gibralter is now sitting with about 800,000, a bit behind Yee now.

Singontiko Extends Lead, Yee and Gibralter Nearly Even


Since three-handed play started, the story has been Gibralter and Singontiko with the chip lead and them waiting until Yee pushes his short stack in. Now however, Yee and Gibralter are nearly even after Singontiko has taken down a few more pots and Yee has as well. The battle for which two will go heads-up just got a lot more interesting. Stay tuned.

After several walks and raise-and-take hands just after the return from break, we finally made it to a river. After David Singontiko folded the button, Jeffrey Gibralter completed in the small blind and Michael Yee checked his option in the BB. Both checked the {6-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop. The turn was the {2-Spades}. Gibralter bet 60,000, and Yee called.

The river brought the {10-Clubs} and a bet of 125,000 from Gibralter. Yee paused just a few seconds, then announced he was all in and Gibralter instantly mucked. Yee showed {4-}{3-}{x-}{x-} for a wheel and six-high straight, and scooped the chips.

A boost for Yee there, now up to 675,000. Gibralter has just under 1.2 million, and Singontiko still leads with 2.4 million.

Sweet Flop for Yee

"Three-way chop?" said the short-stacked Michael Yee with a grin when three-handed play began. "I just want to put that out there," he added. Both Jeffrey Gibralter and David Singontiko chuckled.

Down to just 260,000, Michael Yee received his cards on the button and peeked to look. He shrugged, said "pot" for a raise to 105,000, and David Singontiko quickly folded. Jeffrey Gibralter checked his cards, announced a raise to put Yee all in, and Yee quickly called.

Gibralter {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Yee {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

A royal minus the king for Yee, while Gibralter was looking for low cards on the flop. "Jack, jack, ten!" came the cry from the rail in Yee's cheering section.

Then came the flop -- {J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}! Not exactly the order, but good enough. Indeed, the flopped boat for Yee made the turn {A-Spades} and river {3-Hearts} no matter.

Yee doubles to 535,000, while Gibralter now has about 1.3 million.

Igor Sharaskin Eliminated In 4th Place ($78,413)

Igor Sharaskin
Igor Sharaskin

David Singontiko continues his reign of dominance at this final table by knocking out Igor Sharaskin in fourth place.

Sharaskin raised to 80,000 under the gun and Singontiko called. The flop came down {3-Hearts}{6-Spades}{q-Clubs} and Singontiko checked. Sharaskin bet 125,000 and Singontiko check-raised all in with Sharaskin instantly calling.

Singontiko: {a-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Sharaskin: {a-Spades}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The turn came {6-Diamonds} and the river came {3-Spades} to give Singontiko trip threes with no low for the scoop. His rowdy rail erupted as usual and he moved up to over 2,000,000 in chips. We have three left, and with Michael Yee as short as he is, we will either be even all around or heads-up very soon. Stay tuned
