Vladimir Shchmelev Wins Event #46: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low 8-or-Better

The final day of this event saw the final 17 (435 entries) battle it our for a first prize of $279,084 and the coveted gold bracelet! Alexey Makarov had the lead at the start of the day, but most players had decent stacks to work with so it was impossible to predict who would stand as the winner at the end of the day.

Players were eliminated very fast at the beginning of the day. So fast that the tournament had reached the unofficial final table already before the second break. Makarov finished in 9th place and eventually Mel Judah and Vladimir Shchmelev played heads-up for the title. They battled back and forth for a few hands before the final hand was played...

Judah opened to 125k and Shchmelev called from the big blind. The flop rolled out 5Heart2Club5Diamond and Shchmelev checked. Judah bet 125k and Shchmelev raised to 350k. Judah made the call. The turn was the 9Club and Shchmelev bet 950,000. Judah went all in and Shchmelev called right away.

Shchmelev: ADiamond7Club2Spade2Heart
Judah: AHeart5Club6ClubKSpade

Both players had flopped big hands but Shchmelev was ahead with a full house against Judah's three of a kind. The river card was the QSpade and Judah was eliminated in second place while Shchmelev claimed the first prize and his first bracelet.

1 Vladimir Shchmelev $279,094
2 Mel Judah $172,361
3 Ashly Butler $124,645
4 Brian Hacker $91,085
5 John Cernuto $67,262
6 Tyler Nelson $50,197
7 Andrey Zaichenko $37,847
8 Allyn Jaffrey Shulman $28,821
9 Alexey Makarov $22,171

Wow that was a nice last hand with full-house on flop vs trips + 9 outs.
I still dream to play my first final table on a main event and if i could choose a game that will be PLO8 because 99.99% of players know to play Hold'em.
Or i really don't care what kind of game will be, i want a FT on a MAIN EVENT, i think i'm not the only who wish.

Reaching the paid places for the third time at WSOP with a first prize including a bracelet is awesome. I'm sure we will keep watching Ben Volpe at this event for a long time! As for Shchmelev, it seems he calculated the probabilities of his opponent having a 5 and wasn't affraid as he had a full house. The turn wasn't a figure, which probably reduced Shchmelev's probabilities of thinking Judah could be ahead, so he played well.
