Event #42: $5,000 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha

Palarino Flops a Straight and Gets Paid

[user169806] • Taso 6: 200-400, 0 ante

The cutoff limped in for 400 and Jeffrey Palarino raised to 1,800 from the button. David "Bakes" Baker said, "I raise pot," and he made it 6,200 to play from his seat in the small blind. The big blind and initial limper folded, but Palarino called.

The {9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop was bet to the tune of 5,000 by Baker, Palarino moved all-in for a few thousand more and Baker called.

Baker: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Palarino: {J-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

Palarino had flopped a straight and Baker was left needing a ten in order to improve to a straight himself. The {3-Spades} turn was no help to Baker and neither was the {9-Spades} river, which sent the pot to Palarino.
