Matt Berkey Eliminated in 3rd Place ($199,733)

MrCleverFox • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Matt Stout shakes hands with Matt Berkey after elinating Berkey in 3rd. place.

Hand #58: Matt Stout raised to 90,000 from the button. Matt Berkey reraised to 275,000 from the small blind. Martin Finger folded. Stout moved all in, and Berkey quickly called.

Stout: {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}
Berkey: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}

The flop came out {5-Hearts}{2-Spades}{A-Hearts} putting Stout immediately in the lead. Many in the crowd thought the {8-Clubs} on the turn was the out Berkey needed at first glance, but quickly realized he was still seeking a nine to stay alive. Unfortunately for him the {Q-Spades} wasn't what he needed and he hit the rail in third place, taking with him the one of the largest and loudest rails of the series so far.
