Steve Buckner

Jacob Ferro opened to 350,000 from under the gun and Steve Buckner came along from the big blind to see a Th8s6c flop. He moved all in for 1,350,000 and Ferro called.

Buckner: 8c7c
Ferro: As8d

Both flopped a pair of eights but Buckner had kicker issues. He needed a seven for two pair or a nine to fill his gutshot draw.

“Come on cuz,” Buckner said. “Let me suck out this time.”

The Jh turn was no help and the boisterous one was eliminated after the Ah river.
