Steve Karp

Brekstyn Schutten opened to 225,000 from the cutoff and picked up calls from Steve Karp in the cutoff, Sonny Franco on the button, and Blair Hinkle in the big blind. The flop comes KcTh2c and there are checks from Hinkle and Schutten. Karp bets 650,000 and only Franco comes along.

The turn is the 7s, Karp bets 1,275,000, Franco raises to put Karp all in, and he calls for ~2,000,000.

Franco: Jc8c
Karp: TsTh

Karp flopped a set of tens and had ten outs to fade for his double. The Qc river was one of those outs and Franco made a flush to send Karp out in 19th place.

Sonny Franco – 10,500,000 (105 bb)
Steve Karp – Eliminated in 19th Place ($49,165)
