Pot Limit Omaha High-Low Split Gets Second Bracelet for Viacheslav Zhukov

Viacheslav Zhukov - WSOP 2012
Share this

With a buy-in of $3,000, how many Pot Limit Omaha High-Low Split players does it take to build a prize pool of $1,435,980? Can't do the math? You are forgiven, that's the 'net prize pool' which means it took 526 players. Fifty-four of those players would take money home but only Viacheslav Zhukov would take home the biggest share of $330,277 and the WSOP Gold Bracelet.

The final table was filled with former gold bracelet winners - Chris Bell, David "ODB" Baker, Randy Ohel, former world champion Scotty Nguyen. Zhukov won his first bracelet on his first trip to the WSOP last year when he took down the $10,000 buy-in Omaha High-Low Split event.

When Zhukov and Roch Cousineau started heads-up play Zhukov had close to a 2-1 chip lead. They scrambled back and forth and the lead changed hands more than once. Finally, after almost three hours of heads-up play, Zhukov raised to 250,000 from the button. Cousineau shoved 755,000 all-in from the big blind. Zhukov called.

Cousineau: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Zhukov: {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}

The dealer put out the {4-Spades}{2-Spades}{5-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{8-Spades} and Roch Cousineau's run was over and he collected $204,426 for second place.

Viacheslav Zhukov took home his second gold bracelet and $330,277 for first place. Congratulations Viacheslav!
