Hands #56-59: Lesjoe Doubles Through Berkey Into the Lead

tayke2 • Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante
Martin Lesjoe

Hand #56: Richard Dixon shoved all in, taking the blinds and antes.

Hand #57: Dixon shoved all in, taking the blinds and antes.

Hand #58: Martin Lesjoe raised to 425,000, and he took the blinds and antes.

Hand #59: Lesjoe raised to 425,000 from under the gun, and it folded to Matt Berkey, who called from the big blind.

The flop came down {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}, and Berkey check-called a bet of 425,000 from Lesjoe. Both players checked the {2-Hearts} turn, and the river brought the {Q-Clubs}. Berkey fired out 1.4 million, and Lesjoe thought for a bit before shoving all in.

Berkley asked for an exact count (6.135 million), and he went deep, deep into the tank. After a couple of minutes, he started talking softly to himself. Another two minutes went by before he said, "This might be the biggest laydown I've ever made. I just don't know if I have the heart to do it, though." Another minute went by, and Berkey said, "It would have been so much easier if a heart came." Finally, after about six minutes in the tank, he slapped a stack of chips down for the call.

Lesjoe rolled over {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} for a full house, and Berkey said, "Nice shove," before showing {Q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}.

The chips were counted down, and for the first time all day, Berkey was knocked from the top spot.
