Australian Kahle Burns is fresh off a third place finish in the Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) Main Event last November for $343,179 and he’s chipping up here after eliminating a tablemate.
Burns opened to 1,400 from under the gun and it folded around to the cutoff who moved all in for 11,350. After quickly double-checking the amount Burns made the call to put his opponent at risk.
It was a fair fight but the pocket nines would hold as the board ran out . After a tap of the table the man with big slick departed and Burns added more to his already healthy stack.
