Pot-Limit Omaha

Phil Hellmuth was doing his best to claw his way back into contention here in Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship, but a big pot-limit Omaha hand put an end to his comeback.

In what would be Hellmuth's final hand, Michael Mizrachi raised and Brandon Shack-Harris called. David Steicke then three-bet the size of the pot, and Hellmuth four-bet pot. Mizrachi called, Shack-Harris folded, and Steicke called. The {2-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} flop saw Steicke get his remaining chips all in, Hellmuth did the same, and Mizrachi called to put both players at risk.

Steicke: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Mizrachi: {6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Steicke was ahead with two pair, and it held as the {3-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {J-Spades} on the river. Steicke took down the pot while Hellmuth was eliminated from the tournament.

"Good luck, everyone," Hellmuth mustered before exiting the tournament area.
