Michael Newman

Michael Newman is chasing Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year points but they are not making it easy on him.

Newman was in the cutoff and called an all in shove by William Burdick in the hijack for 31,000.

Newman: 8h8d
Burdick: AsQc

Newman was ahead in the race and stormed further out front on the Th8s7s flop. His set was looking good and Burdick stood up from his seat.

Then he sat back down as the board finished with the 6d turn and 9s river to put a straight on the board for a chopped pot.

Michael Newman – 93,000 (19 bb)
William Burdick – 37,000 (7 bb)
