Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Burbick Wins Race to 100k


Corey Burbick opened the action from early position to 2,800 only to have Steven Merrifield three-bet his button to 6,100.

With the action back on Burbick, he made it 13,800 to go only to have Merrifield instantly push out a stack of yellow 1,000-denomination chips amounting to a re-raise of 46,100. Burbick pushed for his 54,100 total and Merrifield made the call.

Merrifield: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Burbick: {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}

The flop of {3-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{K-Diamonds} put Burbick in the lead, and when the {A-Clubs} and {J-Hearts} rolled off on the turn and river, Burbick doubled through to over 110,000 as Merrifield took a dive back down to under 80,000 in chips.
