Berkey Takes Out Two

Level 16 : 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

The hand started with Mike Watson moving all in for 43,700 and getting an immediate call from Matt Berkey to his left. The action folded around to Ryan Schmidt, who then announced all in for around 135,000 in chips. Berkey asked for a count, but made the call regardless, as the cards were shown.

Berkey: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Schmidt: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Watson: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}

Berkey was looking in great shape to eliminate two players, until the flop came down {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts} giving both his opponent top-pair. However, the {8-Hearts} fell on the turn, giving Berkey the flush, leaving both his opponents drawing dead, as the meaningless {j-Clubs} completed the board.

“Where did you come from?” asked JC Tran, after the hand.

“Mars!” replied Berkey, who’s recent move to the table paid off nicely, as he rockets up to 355,000 in chips.
