Chiu Gets Two-Thirds of a Big One

David Chiu

Omaha Hi/Lo:

Jason Brown limped in from early position, and Ylon Schwartz raised from the button. David Chiu called the extra bet from the big blind, and Brown came along for a three-way flop.

The dealer spread out {6-Diamonds} {2-Hearts} {4-Hearts}, and Chiu led right out with a bet. Follow this action. Brown called, Schwartz raised, Chiu reraised, and Brown cold-called. Schwartz raised again, though, and now Chiu and Brown flatted with four bets in apiece. The pot was getting serious.

The {6-Clubs} paired the board on the turn, and now the table checked around to Schwartz. He bet, Chiu check-raised, Brown cold-called again, and Schwartz flatted. The latter was getting less and less thrilled with the situation as the hand progressed.

Chiu bet the {9-Clubs} river, and both opponents called. The hands, please.

Chiu: {A-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {5-Hearts} {3-Spades} (straight and nut low)
Brown: {A-Spades} {K-Spades} {7-Diamonds} {3-Hearts} (nut low)
Schwartz: {A-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} (nut low)

Schwartz's busted flush draw cost him a huge pot, and he and Brown can only manage to get 1/6th of it apiece. The lion's share goes to Chiu, and he's worked himself all the way back up to 300,000.

David Chiu us 300,000 120,000
Ylon Schwartz us 240,000 -150,000
Jason Brown 205,000 -70,000
