Once again a pass by Dan Shak's table, saw the poker aficionado lose an Omaha hand, getting shown a straight by his opponent.
While Justin Bonomo hurt Shak twice in Omaha/8, Shak's swan song was played in a PLO hand.
Bonomo raised to 3,200 from the hijack and Daniel Negreanu flatted in the next seat. Shak announced, "Pot," from the button, and the dealer informed him the bet was 14,600.
Mike Matusow cold-called from the small blind while the open-raiser Bonomo folded. Negreanu came along.
Three-way to the flop, Matusow checked to Negreanu who bet out 12,000. Shak moved all in for under 20,000, and Matusow left the hand, letting Negreanu go solo against Shak.
"Wow, you have a straight already," Shak observed. He was calling for a four for a chop, and one would arrive in the on the turn. However, it did no service to Shak who spotted he was still trailing.
The river finished his painful hour as he lost his tournament life, losing to a straight again.
Negreanu raked in the pot to climb back over 200,000.
