Share this

Jarred Graham had the short stack when the last 14 players arrived for Day 3 of Event #31 $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better. Within the first 20 minutes of the day Graham was all-in. When the final table was set, Perry Green, three-time bracelet winner, was the first to go. From there Marco Johnson, Eric Rodawig, and Loni Harwood were next. Three handed-play took over two hours but Graham knocked out Barry Greenstein and it got down to Marco Johnson and Jarred Graham.

9Perry Green$18,223

The final hand came down when Johnson raised to 160,000 and Jarred Graham reraised to 480,000. Johnson went into the tank and then made the call. The dealer put up the {9h{10-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Graham bet pot which was enough to put Johnson all-in. Johnson stood up and started running through numbers, talking to himself, calculating if he had the odds to call off. Then he said, "I have a pair I have to call."

Johnson: {4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Graham: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

Johnson needed a second pair to take the lead, or catch running low cards. But the {k-Hearts} on the turn ended it; Graham hit an unbeatable set of kings. The river was the {q-Diamonds} and Johnson ended the final table with his third career runner-up finish at a WSOP event.

Jarred Graham won his first WSOP bracelet and $255,942 for first place.
