We get to the table on a flop of , David Burke bets 22,000 and is met with an all in from Aleks Golubevs who shoves for 101,500. After some time in the tank David makes the call and the cards go on their backs…

Aleks shows for an open ended straight draw.

David tables for a gut shot, and the nut flush draw, at the moment his ace high is ahead..

The turn card comes changing nothing.

The river card comes !! David makes a pair, but Aleks has rivered the straight. He takes the pot and doubles up to 240,000!!

The flop comes J–A–A

Brian Caswell & David check to Ryan Cooper who bets 17,000, Brian moves all in for 75,000!! David spends some time in the tank before also moving all in!! Ryan quickly gets out of the way and the cards are tabled…

Brian shows Q-J for two pair but has ran into an absolute MONSTER as David shows ACES for flopped quads!

The turn comes a King.

The river another King.

Brian busts the tournament and laughs about it as he leaves.

A huge pot for David as he now has 280,000 which is good for a top three stack in the room.
