PLO on Hustler Casino Live: Professor Scoops $200K Pot with Trips and Prop Bet Win

Last July, Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) took center stage on Hustler Casino Live, following its growing popularity, especially evident in this year’s World Series of Poker. The “Tom and Airball Show” featured high-stakes $500/$500 PLO cash games. This highlighted the unique action and massive swings that make PLO beloved among players. A memorable hand involved Professor, who raised with trip tens. 

Professor entered the pot with a $10,000 raise, holding trip tens, prompted by an enticing prop bet promising an extra $5,000 to the winner. After facing a three-bet to $34,000 and a button call from Dwan, Professor pushed the pot to $111,000, retaining only $16,000. Dwan had the highest equity at 61% with a pair, straight draw, and flush draw while Professor held the better hand with just 20% equity, consisting of a pair of tens and backdoor straight and flush draws. Despite the odds, Professor pushed the remaining $16,000 into the pot, reaching a total of $163,000.
