Allan Le won't earn his second bracelet here in the $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Event. Le's fantastic run finished two places shy of the pedestal, falling to Tyler Groth.
The case hand started with Groth's button-raise to 150,000 and Jonathan Zarin's call from the small blind. Le, however, woke up with the maximum three-bet, pushing the price to 600,000 from the big blind. Groth seemed to be interested, so Le needled him: "You wanna gamble?" before the dealer informed the players that it's a three-way pot and they can't discuss the hand.
Groth eventually called, and while Zarin looked upset and confused, he released his hand.
The flop came , and Le moved all in for about 800,000. Groth snap-called.
Groth flopped two pair, and Le was in trouble. The turn reduced his outs further, as Groth now had a flush draw, and the river sealed it for Le, who fell in third place.
The only WSOP bracelet winner of the three poker playing brothers has added another great result to his name, albeit missing out on the gold this time. Le received $78,372 for his efforts, leaving Groth and Zarin to battle for the title.
