WSOP Tournament of Champions

Barton's Aces No Match For Ferguson

Chris Ferguson raised to 1,000 under the gun and Andrew Barton made it 3,500 to go from the cutoff. Action folded around to Ferguson and he called, leading to a {J-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Spades} flop.

Ferguson checked and Barton bet 3,000. There was no hesitation from Ferguson, quickly raising to 18,000. Barton called all in for about 10,000 with {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}, but was crushed by Ferguson's {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}. Barton was not saved by the {3-Spades} turn card or {5-Clubs} river card and is out.

Ferguson is up to about 40,000.
