With the board showing Ks9c4h6h on the turn and a little more than 400K already in the pot, Fred Goldberg checked from the big blind, Luke Brereton bet 175,000 from the button, and Goldberg check-raised to 700,000, leaving himself about 150,000 behind.

Brereton went into the tank for a very long time before he folded, and Goldberg took the pot.

Brereton really wanted to see the river card, and Goldberg smiled and told him he could have seen it for free if he hadn’t bet the turn.

Fred Goldberg  –  1,435,000  (29 bb)
Luke Brereton  –  855,000  (17 bb)
