Matt Berkey Eliminated in 3rd Place ($240,588)

Matt Berkey

Hand #147: Matt Berkey limped in from the small blind, and Martin Lesjoe checked his option. The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Clubs}, and Berkey bet 600,000. Lesjoe moved all in, and Berkey thought for about 20 seconds before calling.

Berkey: {Q-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Lesjoe: {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Both players hit the flop well, but the hand was over when the {7-Clubs} hit the turn. The river was the meaningless {6-Spades}, and the chips were counted down. Lesjoe had Berkey just out-chipped, meaning that Berkey was forced to settle for third place.
