Jerry Burnette opened for 1.9 million, got a flat from Guo Cheng, then Ricky Lee jammed for 4.6 million from the big blind. Jerry gave it some thought, then announced “all in”. Guo said “Thank God! I would not know what to do!” as he quickly folded his hand. (Later said it was pocket 7s.)
Ricky gave it some thought, then called all-in. His was racing against Jerry’s . The board came and Ricky paired his Ace to double up to ~12.5 million.
Then on the next hand, Jerry shoved under-the-gun for 16.5 million. Guo Cheng (cutoff) immediately moved in for 10.7 million and everyone else got out of the pot. Jerry’s was dominated by Guo’s . The board fell and Guo’s kicker played. He doubled up to about 23 million. Jerry was left with a bit under 6 million.
Never fear, however, Jerry picked up a double-up soon after to get back in the game.
