Event 2: Joey Prosper – 5th Place ($898)

$300 Big Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry)
Level 18: 4,000/8,000

At the very least, Joey Prosper could have expected to chop his final pot. Instead he found an unfriendly river.

Prosper opened under the gun for a pot-sized bet and David White came along from the button. After the Jd5s2c flop, Prosper moved all-in for just under the pot. White took his time to consider but finally called with AhKhKc7s which was in a dead heat to tie Prosper’s KsKd7d3c.

The 4d gave Prosper a little hope free-rolling the flush with White holding only two outs to scoop. One of those showed up in the form of the Ah river for the surprise knockout and send Prosper out in 5th place for $898.
