Joey Burns

It seemed like a pretty standard pot with three players remaining and a three-way pot. The board was out to the turn and reading Ks7c3sQc when the fireworks were lit off.

With a packed rail thanks to Event 10 on break, Willie Wiggins and Joey Burns put their chips in the middle with Frank Lewis opting to stay out of the fray.

Burns tabled pockets aces but Wiggins was ahead with two pair Qd7h and the slightly bigger stack. The river 9h finished the board, Wiggins’s friends erupted, and it was a shocking exit for our Day 3 starting chip leader.

Willie Wiggins – 75,100,000 (94 bb)
Joey Burns – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($78,480)
