Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Burkholder Busted

Steven Burkholder was all in for about 335,000 before the flop with {A-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}. John May looked him up with {K-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds}, and Burkholder was unimpressed when he saw that his opponent was drawing live for the knockout.

The flop was clean ({J-Diamonds} {2-Clubs} {8-Spades}), but the turn {K-Hearts} was a disastrous card for the all-in player. The river {3-Spades} filled out the board and sealed Burkholder's elimination, and he's made his way to the payout desk to collect his consolation prize.
