From the hijack seat, Kahle Burns raised to 2,600. Dylan Honeyman flat-called on the button, and then Timo Pfutzenreuter reraised to 11,700 out of the small blind. Action made its way back to Burns, and he reraised to 24,400. After Honeyman ducked out of the way, Pfutzenreuter fired back with a five-bet to 40,000. Burns called, and the dealer spread the flop with over 80,000 already in the middle.
Burns had a little under 70,000 left in his stack heading into the flop, and Pfutzenreuter had a stack of around 270,000. Pfutzenreuter bet just 10,000, and Burns made the call to see the turn.
On the turn, both players checked the to see the complete the board on the river. Pfutzenreuter checked again, and then Burns moved all in. Burns had a lot of physical chips, and it took a few moments for the dealer to count it all out. With the assistance of a second dealer (the one that was about to tap into the box for the next round), it was determined that Burns was all in for 57,700.
Pfutzenreuter went into the tank and after about 30 seconds or so he began talking out loud to himself, verbalizing his thought process and running through a series of hands that Burns could have. Several minutes passed as the clock ticked down to zero for the dinner break. Just as it did, Pfutzenreuter stuck in the chips to make the call.
Burns confidently turned over the for top set of aces. Pfutzenreuter flashed and then mucked his hand.
"Why does the ace have to be out there?" asked Pfutzenreuter to Burns. "It makes it so less likely that you have aces."
"It's also makes it easier for you to fold," responded Burns.
"True, I should just fold," finished Pfutzenreuter.
After the smoke settled, Pfutzenreuter was left with just over 200,000, and Burns increased to over 220,000.
