Torgerson Doubles Through Two-Time Champ

HillKerby • Level 16: 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante

Fresh to the table after Table 7 broke, Eric Torgerson was on the button and three-bet all in for 46,500 over a cutoff open to 10,000 from 2006 and 2009 Main Event Champion Brad Berman. Berman thought for about 30 seconds and then put in chips to call.

Eric Torgerson: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Brad Berman: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

Torgerson's tens were out in front and pulled even further ahead as the flop came {7-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-Spades} to give him a set of tens. The turn {3-Hearts} left Berman drawing dead before the river {2-Clubs} finished the runout, resulting in the pot being sent to Torgerson.

"Nice table change," another player across the table chided. Torgerson smiled as he raked in the pot.
