The great game of PLO can lead to some exciting hands playing out and the most high-wire one of the final table just played out with Peter Eichhardt taking the chip lead back from Yi-Chih Huang.
Huang opened to 62,000 on the button and Eichhardt called in the small blind. Kenneth Wong folded his big blind and Eichhardt checked the 9♣8♦5♣ flop. Huang bet 82,000 and Eichhardt called. Eichhardt checked the 3♦ turn and Huang bet 214,000. Not to be outdone, Eichhardt check-raised all-in for 649,000 total.
Huang called with A♦10♥7♣6♥ for a straight while Eichhardt was looking for the board to pair with his K♥J♠9♥9♠. The 9♦ hit the river to give Eichhardt quads and he shipped the massive pot to move back to 1,500,000. Huang fell to 1,080,000 and lost an all-in to Wong a few hands late to drop to 800,000.
Wong’s K♣K♥Q♣9♣ defeated the A♦5♥3♥2♦ of Huang on a A♣6♦5♣4♣6♣ board. Wong now sits with 650,000.
