Woody Deck Eliminated in 7th Place ($39,506)

Florian Langmann raised to 100,000 in the cutoff, and Woody Deck called on the button. Zach Freeman shipped in for 335,000 in the small blind, the big blind folded, and Langmann shoved pot over that. Deck called off his 980,000.

Deck: {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{5-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Langmann: {10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades}
Freeman: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

Freeman had found double-suited kings with {a-}{4-} in the blinds and rolled with it, and Langmann's isolation play had failed. The flop was {7-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{4-Spades}, giving Langmann the nut low and Freeman the high. A brutal {10-Hearts} turned, and Deck was now in danger of busting as Langmann had him scooped with two pair and the nut low. The {9-Diamonds} helped nobody, so Freeman took the main high pot with aces up, while Langmann took the low. The German scooped the whole side pot, leaving Deck going out in seventh with the second-best stack.

Final Table Interview: Woody Deck

Woody Deck made his first World Series of Poker final table back in 2007. Now he's back for his second shot at a bracelet in Event #54: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low.

But it isn't WSOP gold he's after. It's the money and the chance to play his favorite brand of poker.

PokerNews spoke with Deck at the break about why he loves Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low so much and just what his plan is going forward in the latest Final Table Interview.

PokerNews: This is your second WSOP final table. Is it any more exciting this time around?

I have more chips than last time, but I was chip leader nine handed and came eighth, so this is more fun. It's a good time, crazy table, but I don't know. It's just like any other tournament. I don't feel any different between playing this and $20 online.

PokerNews: Playing for a WSOP bracelet must make it somewhat exciting?

I need the money, the bracelet is maybe six or seven hundred dollars worth of gold. I'm playing the for the money, but I also enjoy the game. I really enjoy playing Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo.

PokerNews: It's noticeable on your resume as of late. There are a lot of cashes in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo tournaments.

It's probably the only thing I play and I cash in maybe half of them. I play PLO cash, but Hold'em tournaments, only heads-up and it's hard to find heads-up tournaments with reasonable buy ins.

PokerNews: So you'll travel specifically to a tournament series with a Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo tournament on the schedule?

I'll come if they have Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, but if it's just Hold'em I won't go.

I can remember going to London for a $200 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo tournament. I went to Paris from London, about a four hour journey on the Eurostar, just to play a 400 Euro Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo tournament. It wasn't about the profit, it was just about how much I enjoy playing this game.

PokerNews: Why Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo?

It's what I grew up playing online. It's very well suited to online. Not so much live. The games used to be very good and I did quite well in them.

I really want to win the tournament. I don't care about the bracelet, but my friend won it in 2007. I was the first out and he won the tournament. We were rooming together, so hopefully it works out differently this time.

PokerNews: So what is your plan going forward?

Wait for the free money and then gamble it up. There's not that much skill when you're short stacked. The most aggressive person usually wins if they run good and that's what I've done. I'm the only one who has pulled off a bluff at the table. Florian [Langmann] keeps raising it up with junk and doubling people up.

Wilkerson - More Doubles Than Mike Trout

mnuwwarah • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Dylan Wilkerson completed the blind and saw Florian Langmann pot it. Wilkerson repotted, and the two got it all in from the blinds.

Wilkerson: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Langmann: {a-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

Each had only one unique card, with Wilkerson leading with ace-queen, while Langmann had the only suited cards with clubs. Wilkerson paired his queen on the {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop, and a {9-Clubs} turn sealed it for him as Langmann couldn't even catch a low for a quarter.

Wilkerson Doubles Again

mnuwwarah • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Zach Freeman opened to 60,000 in late position, and Dylan WIlkerson shoved in the big blind for 172,000. Freeman made the call.

Freeman: {q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Wilkerson: {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

An {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{q-Spades} flop gave Wilkerson a hammerlock with Broadway, but a {5-Spades} turn gave Freeman lots of chopping outs. He paired with the {2-Spades}, though.
