Event 47: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Dario Doubles (and Then Some)

Dario Alioto

Dario Alioto, owner of one bracelet won at 2007 WSOP Europe in a £5,000 PLO event, was just now all in with his tourney life at risk.

After two players limped and the small blind completed, Alioto reraised the pot for 20,000 from the big blind, then Nicholas Verkaik reraised the pot from one seat over prompting the others to fold, then Alioto to call with his remaining chips.

Alioto held {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} and Verkaik {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. The board brought five face cards — {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades}{J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} — and Alioto's full house took the pot.
