Josh Arieh Wins Event #12 ($2,000 Pot-Limit Omaha)

Hand 127 - Arieh has the button, he raises, and Ferguson folds.

Hand 128 - Ferguson has the button, he raises to $36,000, and Arieh calls. The flop comes 7h-5h-2c, Arieh bets $50,000, Ferguson raises to $200,000, and Arieh stands up to think a while before reraising. Arieh puts Ferguson all in for $155,000 more, and Ferguson calls. Arieh shows Kh-9d-3h-2d (pair of twos, king-high flush draw), and he dominates Ferguson's Kd-10h-9h-3d. In fact, Ferguson is drawing dead to a ten, unless he can catch a runner-runner straight to chop. The turn card is the Ac, and Ferguson has to catch a ten to survive (3 outs). The river card is the Js, and Chris Ferguson is eliminated in second place, earning $210,460.
