Morad Takes Big One From Brown

Qushqar Morad

Pot-Limit Omaha

The action started with Qushqar Morad, who limped from the cutoff, and Andrew Brown opted to make it 2,700 from the button. Ali Eslami called from the big blind, and Morad called as well.

The flop came down {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and both Eslami and Morad checked. Brown fired out 4,300 and only Morad made the call.

The turn was the {a-Diamonds} and both players checked. The river was the {9-Hearts} and Morad fired out 9,000. Brown raised it up for 32,700 and his opponent called. Brown showed {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}, and mucked the rest of his hand when Morad showed {Q-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} for a flopped full house.

Morad is sitting with a big stack, and is probably one of the lesser known players in today's field. His name might not be very well known, but he does have a bracelet in the 2002 $5,000 Seven Card Stud event. Morad has two cashes at the WSOP, his second being a runner-up finish in the 2007 $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event behind Alan Smurfit. Brown also has a WSOP bracelet, he won the $2,000 Omaha hi/lo event for $226,483.
