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

Ferguson Fokked

Shamus

Michael Ferguson opened with a raise to 54,000 from under the gun, and it folded around to Fokke Beukers on the button who called. The blinds released their hands, and the flop came {7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}.

That flop was enough to get the ball rolling here. Ferguson checked, Beukers bet 75,000, Ferguson check-raised to 210,000, Beukers reraised all in, and Ferguson called with his remaining chips.

Ferguson showed {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}, but probably thought of a word that resembled his opponent's first name when he saw Beukers' {9-Spades}{7-Spades}. The turn was the {2-Spades} and river the {4-Diamonds}, and Ferguson was eliminated.

Beukers now has 3.2 million.
