Event #64: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

Shklover Bluffs Baron

• Taso 21: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Michael Shklover bet 55,000 from the blinds on {k-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{4-Spades}{9-Spades}, and Isaac Baron raised to 175,000 in the cutoff. Shklover called, and the river brought the {j-Clubs}. Shklover led out for 225,000, and Baron went deep into the tank. He continued to think as Matt Stout discussed the merits of the game Apples 2 Apples across the table, and Baron sighed as he seemed to work up the courage to throw his cards into the muck before stopping.

"Sorry, guys," he said. "Tough decision."

At long last, he did lay the hand down, staring at Shklover with a slight smile as if he hoped to get shown the hand.

Shklover obliged, tossing {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{7-Clubs}{7-Spades} into the middle with one hand while dragging the pot with the other.
