Mike Kilker

Mike Kilker limped from the small blind and Justin Liberto checked in the big blind.

The flop was 7d3d2c, Kilker bet 100,000, Liberto raised to 425,000, and Kilker called.

The turn was the 8c, Kilker checked, Liberto bet effectively 1,650,000, and Kilker instantly called all in with 8d4d for a pair of eights with a flush draw. Liberto was behind with Qc9h.

The river was the 7c, safe for Kilker to double up.

Mike Kilker  –  4,450,000  (45 bb)
Justin Liberto  –  6,700,000  (67 bb)
