Event #6: €1,620 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha

Alexander Feels Greats

"Sorry", said Alexander Kostritsyn when he raked in all the chips to double-up against Ludovic Lacay.

We picked up the action on the flop where the board read {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}. Lacay bet 4,700 from the cut-off and tank-called when his Russian opponent check-raised to 21,500. The turn came {10-Hearts} and Kostritsyn moved all-in for his last 30,900. Call.

Ludovic Lacay: {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{a-Diamonds} for the nut straight and re-draw to the nut flush.
Alexander Kostritsyn: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs} for middle set.

Kostritsyn needed help to survive and he got it as the river fell {5-Diamonds} to pair the board and fill him up. Lacay was devastated and threw his cards angrily towards the muck. Floor man Kevin was on hand and gave the Frenchman a warning for his conduct, which seemed a tad harsh.
