Stephen Bierman

Jeffrey Higgins opened the button to 45,000. Austin Reilly folded his small blind and Stephen Bierman shoved the big for 321,000. After a couple minutes in the tank, Higgins called and Bierman was at risk.

Bierman: AhTd
Higgins: Ad8d

Runout: Kc7s8c2d4d

Higgins hit an unlikely pair when the 8c fell on the flop. The turn and river 2d and 4d were no help to Bierman’s ace-10 which was second best. He was eliminated in third place for $5,729.
