Raymond Davis - 10th Place
Raymond Davis - 10th Place

After losing a Stud-8 hand to Scotty Nguyen that left him with just 300,000, Raymond Davis was all in before the flop with Patrick Bueno. And Davis looked to be in good shape, with {A-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds} to Patrick's {K-Hearts} {7-Clubs}. But the {7-Hearts} {7-Spades} {2-Clubs} flop crushed Davis' hopes and when the {5-Spades} and {5-Diamonds} fell on the turn and river Davis was out in 10th place.

Berman Counterfeited


Lyle Berman raised from UTG, Erick Lindgren three-bet from the small blind and Berman called. The flop was {A-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {6-Hearts}. Lindgren bet and Berman called. The turn was the {9-Hearts}. Another bet from Lindgren and another call from Berman. Same story after the {9-Diamonds} on the river.

Berman's flopped two pair with {A-Clubs} {6-Diamonds} were counterfeited on the river and Lindgren took it down with his {A-Hearts} {K-Clubs}.

"Oh my God, I misread my hand!" exclaimed Berman, who thought he had A-8 instead of A-6. "Thank God-- I would have lost even more money to you!"
