Straight Flush for Ashton

Chad_Holloway • Nivo 25

Omaha Hi-Lo

Hand #239: Matthew Ashton called from the small blind and then put in more chips when Don Nguyen raised from the big. Ashton then bet the {q-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds} flop, Nguyen called and the action repeated itself on the {3-Clubs} turn and {8-Spades} river.

Ashton rolled over the {j-Spades}{10-Spades}{j-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a straight flush and it was good enough to scoop the pot as Nguyen sent his hand to the muck.

That was the last hand before the break, so we'll have official counts for you in just a moment.

Hand #224: John Hennigan opened for 200,000 from the small blind and Matthew Ashton defended from the big. The latter then called a bet of 175,000 from the former on the {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop and the dealer burned and turned the {2-Clubs}, which both players checked.

When the {10-Hearts} completed the board on the river, Hennigan bet 300,000 and Ashton called.

"You got it," Hennigan admitted prompting Ashton to table the {k-Spades}{9-Clubs} for the win.

Hand #226: Ashton made it 160,000 from the button, both his opponents called and it was three-way action to the {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop. Two checks put action on Ashton and he bet 240,000. Don Nguyen folded and then Hennigan woke up with a check-raise to 500,000, which Ashton called. Both players checked the {A-Spades} turn and then Hennigan fired out 700,000 on the {5-Clubs} river. Ashton thought for a brief moment and then folded his hand.
