Event #61:$10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Massive Start for Bleznick

[user101598] • Ниво 19: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Despite writing "100,000" on his bag last night, and nodding fervently when our reporter asked him if this number was correct, Jared Bleznick began Day 3 with 226,000 chips. On the very first hand, he three-bet to 88,000 after Nacho Barbero had opened to 24,000 in early position. Barbero called.

The flop fell {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{k-Hearts}, Barbero checked, and Bleznick moved all in for 139,000. Barbero snap-called.

Bleznick: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Barbero: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{q-Spades}{9-Spades}

Both players had flopped a set, but Bleznick's set of aces was higher. He held as the turn and river bricked off {8-Clubs}, {10-Hearts} respectively, and doubled to 454,000 chips. Barbero was crippled to 85,000.

A few hands later, after a series of preflop raises, Bleznick was all in and at risk again. Barbero called all in for much less, and Nadar Kakhmazov had both players covered.

Bleznick: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Barbero: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Kakhmazov: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

"S***!" Bleznick said at the sight of Barbero's aces.

Not to fret, both players' hands held as the board ran out {3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{9-Spades}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, and Bleznick began to celebrate.

"Yes baby!" he shouted, high-fiving a friend. "Yes!"

He doubled once again, and now sits with 815,000 chips, while Barbero is still short with 130,000 and Kakhmazov dropped down to 220,000.
