Event #3: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Klein Pays Off Billirakis

mnuwwarah • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Loren Klein raised to 18,000 from middle position and was called by only Steve Billirakis, in the cutoff. Klein continuation-bet 21,000 on the {3-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop, and Billirakis made the call after some deliberation. The {9-Diamonds} turned, and both players checked the three-flush board. A fourth diamond, the {10-Diamonds} completed the community, and Klein checked. Billirakis bet 35,000, and Klein thought for a minute or two before calling.

Billirakis showed {9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for a low flush, and Klein quickly mucked.

"Bet the turn and bust me," he said.

Billirakis did not respond.
