Event 19: 3rd Place - Habibi

$400 + $50 Six-Max NLH

Sahu Habibi (New York, NY)
$6,509


Blinds 12k/24k/3k ante

Jim Burnett raises from the button to 65k, Habibi moves all in for 212k more from the SB.

Burnett tanks and says, "it's my favorite hand. I don't think I can fold it. Call"

Habibi: K Q♠
Burnett: J♠ 10

Flop: 8 4 Q (Habibi pair of queens)
Turn: K(Habibi two pairs, Burnett OE straight draw)
River: 9

The river gives Burnett the straight and knocks Habibi out in third place.  One hand earlier these two went to the river with no bets and Burnett says, "quad aces," as he turns over a pair of aces.

Burnett and Jose Montes are dead even in chips as heads up play is underway.
