Event 26: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Lawson Approaching a Century

Both John Racener and Ted Lawson have their names etched into the core of World Series of Poker (WSOP) history. Racener, who has already had three cashes this year - including one final table, is a former Main Event runner-up and has over $6 million in WSOP cashes alone. Lawson is a WSOP bracelet holder who loves the game of Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO); in fact his bracelet, earned in 2004, came in a PLO event. Here are the two heroes haranguing each other.

Racener raised to 3,600, in first position, and Lawson made the call from position in the cutoff. The flop was {K-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} {2-Spades} and Racener bet 4,700, Lawson increased the stakes to 24,260 and Racener called. Fourth street brought us the {7-Spades}, Racener checked, Lawson moved all-in for 22,000 and Racener folded.
