Jack Hardcastle opened the betting to 22,000 from the cutoff but Ciaran Burke came over top with a raise to 65,000 from the button. The blinds got out of the way, and Hardcastle called to see :::Ks:::8h:::7s on the flop.
Hardcastle check-called Burke’s 34,000 flop bet, and they both checked the :::6h turn. They both checked again on the :::Ac and Burke showed down ace-ten for rivered top pair, and Hardcastle showed an eight as he mucked his hand.
"I knew it was a really bad river," he added as the dealer was shuffling for the next hand.
