Mike Leah - 7th Place

Omaha Hi-Low

Mike Leah opened with a raise to 50,000 from under the gun and cleared the field all the way around t John Kabbaj, who opted to defend from the big blind. The {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop saw Kabbaj check-call a bet of 25,000 and then check the {Q-Diamonds} turn. Leah bet 50,000, Kabbaj check-raised to 100,000, and Leah thought for a long time before three-betting to 150,000, leaving himself just 15,000 back. Kabbaj four-bet and it went in.

Leah: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Kabbaj: {3-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Kabbaj had a full house, which meant Leah would need either an ace or qualifying low on the river to stay alive. The {5-Spades} peeled off, and Leah initially thought the low card did it. Unfortunately for him it didn't as it double paired the board.

Leah will take home $31,115 for his seventh-place finish.
