Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Ron Burke Eliminated in 17th Place ($11,071)

Ron Burke - 17th Place

The first elimination of the day has just taken place, with Ron Burke falling to the rail in 17th place. We caught the action from the turn with a board already showing {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{5-Spades} and Burke involved in the hand with Raymond Dehkharghani. Burke was busy leading on this street and Dehkharghani quickly made it an extra bet. That was enough to put Burke all-in as he committed his last 12,500 in chips.

Dehkharghani: {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Burke: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Burke needed to catch some help on the river, but when a {7-Hearts} fell, it was all over for him as he goes home with a bittersweet $11,071.
