Eric van der Burg Eliminated in 2nd Place ($5,000)

WSOPC Ring Event #11: $300 NLHE Turbo
Level 21: Blinds 10,000 – 25,000 / BBA 25,000

1 / 108 Players Remaining

Gary Lapier raised to 100,000 on the button and then called the three-bet shove by Eric van der Burg for what appeared to be around 450,000.

Eric van der Burg: Ks2s
Gary Lapier: KhQc

“You and your high cards,” the Dutchman joked and then asked for a deuce. Instead, he found a tease with the 7c6s4s flop. However, the flush draw missed on the Kc turn and 3c river to ensure the kicker would play. Van der Burg was eliminated in 2nd place while Lapier earned his very first WSOP Circuit gold ring at the tender age of 68 years.

Gary Lapier – Winner for $8,000
Eric van der Burg – Runner-up for $5,000
