$240 Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry) Level 15: 2,000/4,000
Luis Santoni limps from middle position, and Robert Melo raises to 11,000 in the cutoff. Brad Coultas calls all in for his last 4,500 in the big blind, Santoni calls the remainder, and there’s heads-up action on the side with Coultas at risk.
The board runs out , with the two live players checking it all the way down.
“Aces up,” Santoni announces.
“Set,” Melo has him beaten, at least verbally. He tables to prove it, showing three queens. Santoni mucks.
Coultas is all in, so his inferior is tabled as he stands from his chair. He’s eliminated on the money bubble, and the five remaining players are guaranteed at least $640.
$240 Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry) Level 14: 1,500/3,000
Robert Melo opens to 7,000 in the cutoff, and Joseph Patalano three-bets to 25,500 from the button. Brad Coultas calls all in for his last 6,000 in the big blind, Melo folds, and Coultas is heads up for his tournament life.
The board runs out , and Colultas rivers two pair to win the pot. He more than triples up, though he’s still the short stack at the table.
