Dirksen Hits Two-Outer to Stay Alive

Dustin Dirksen

Dustin Dirksen was all-in and at risk for 2,700,000 against chip leader Kevin Gerhart.

Dustin Dirksen: {a-Clubs}{6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Kevin Gerhart: {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

"Oh, we have similar hands," Dirksen said.

"I like yours better," replied Gerhart.

But attitudes changed when the flop of {7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} gave Gerhart trips and the lead, and the {10-Spades} on the turn didn't change things.

"Just a six and a six only," Dirksen said as he considered his outs.

And just like that, the river brought the {6-Hearts} and Dirksen scooped the pot to keep his tournament dreams alive.
