Big Double for Matt Smith

Matt Smith and Daniel Lawrence got into a big clash in Pot-Limit Omaha that saw Lawrence lose the chip lead for the first time all day. Smith bet pot, which was for nearly all of his stack, on the turn of a board showing [Kd][9h][8s][5h]. Lawrence thought for quite some time before moving Smith all in, and Smith quickly called.

Lawrence was in rough shape with [Qh][Qs][Jc][2h], as his flush draw was useless against the three pair (K-9-8), and king high flush draw of Smith. The [3h] on the river gave both players a flush, but Smith had Lawrence just one upped.

Now, Smith is the one who holds a 2-1 chip lead over Lawrence.
