Culbert’s Stack gets Cut to Zero
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 1c 23/49
Level 9: 300-600 / Ante 100
The stack of Ibrahim Binici had dwindled to around 65,000 and he had no small change, but plenty of blue T-5,000 chips. Then, he announced a raise to 1,200 and tossed in 5,200, which led to several players raising an eye brow and asking for clarification. Once the correct raise was confirmed and the action was on Desmond Culbert in middle position, he moved all in for around 17,000.
It folded back to Binici and he glanced over, took 30 seconds and called.
Desmond Culbert: Ac7d
Ibrahim Binici: QhJh
The flop of 10h8h7s was huge for Binici, giving him a ton of outs. While the 5s on the turn changed nothing, the Qc river improved Binici and Culbert was eliminated.
