Engel Short, Rubino Into Contention

MikePatrick • Level 24

Limit Omaha 8 or Better

John Rubino has been running up his stack in the last level and was approaching the one-million chip mark.

In a recent pot with Ari Engel, Engel raised in early position and was three-bet in the cutoff by Rubino. Engel called.

Engel then check-called all three streets on a {k-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} {3-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} runout.

Rubino showed {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for a six-high straight and the nut low, while Engel could only show {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Spades} to chop the low and take a quarter of the pot.

Laplante Chips Up Through Tardif

MikePatrick • Level 24

Limit Omaha 8 or Better

Ryan Laplante just took down a critical pot courtesy of Patrick Tardif.

They had each committed 125,000 chips before the river on a board of {j-Spades}{5-Hearts}{a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}.

Laplante bet the river {6-Clubs}, and Tardif went into the tank. Eventually he folded, saying "I think I'm supposed to fold three pair on the turn".

Laplante dragged the pot and showed his opponent the {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{3-Clubs}.

Pot-Limit Omaha 8 or Better

Just before the break, Daniel Negreanu took down a large pot from Dana Kellstrom.

On a turn board of {7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}, Kellstrom checked to Negreanu from the big blind, and Negreanu bet the size of the pot (165,000) from under the gun.

Kellstrom gave it some thought, then folded and showed {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{4-}{5-} for aces with a low draw. Negreanu showed {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{k-} for aces with a flush draw and the same low draw.

With the win, Negreanu is now back among the bigger stacks in the room with 700,000.

With {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} on the board, David Levy and Hernan Salazar were standing over one of the biggest pots of the day. Levy was all-in and Salazar had called.

Levy showed {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Salazar had {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. When the dust settled Salazar took the high pot with the nut flush against the second nuts, and the two players split the low pot with their ace-two.

Salazar is now well about the 1 million mark after eliminating Yonatan Smith just prior to this hand.
