Peace Out for Birman

Chad_Holloway • Level 6: 250-500, 50 ante
Paul Birman

Paul Birman raised to 1,200 under the gun and then called when Jack Salter, who finished runner-up in the European Poker Tour Grand Final earlier this year, three-bet to 3,000 from middle position. Birman checked the {2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop and then hit the tank hard when Salter bet 5,050. Several minutes passed before Birman shoved all in for roughly 20,000 and Salter snap-called.

Salter: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Birman: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

Birman's overpair was dominated, but he got a sweat as the {10-Clubs} turn delivered him an open-ended straight draw. Unfortunately for him, and much to Salter's relief, the {3-Spades} blanked on the river.
