Luc Greenwood raised to 70,000 under the gun only to have Byron Kaverman three-bet all in for 835,000 from the small blind. Greenwood asked for an exact count, made the call, and discovered the bad news.
Kaverman was well out in front, and he stayed there on both the flop and turn. However, this is an elimination post, so you know what's coming. The dealer burned one last time and put out the river!
Greenwood hit his two outer to send Kaverman to the rail in fourth place. The final three players are now taking a short break to have a look at ICM calculations. We spoke to Byron Kaverman after his exit to discuss his incredible week at the felt.
"It's been insane, really. I've hardly seen anything of the resort, except for running on the beach."
Hang on, Kaverman ran good outside the PokerStars Championship cardroom too?
"I've run it four times this week. I felt too tired a couple of mornings, but it felt good. I just kept trying to keep my focus at the table all week and somehow it worked out. I ran super-good too, but I played OK."
To remind you of his results this trip, Kaverman finished fifth in the $100K Super High Roller event for $445,320, before hopping into the $5,300 Main Event during late registration. There he lasted until Day 4, finishing 28th for $19,000, before running to third in the $50,000 Single Re-Entry event for $452,220. He's just wrapped up his week by pushing his winnings up to over $1.2 million.
"I had a poor 2016, but this more than makes up for it. I'm just glad that I managed to hold it together throughout. I'm not really sure how."
Only behind Bryn Kenney's amazing exploits, Byron Kaverman has had the dream week at the live felt for a poker professional. He'll miss the Aussie Millions festival, not having planned to attend, but wherever he ends up next, you can be sure we'll be looking for that first big result.
