With about 100,000 in the pot and board reading Ks4c2sJh, action was on the player on the button with 40,000 already committed post-turn, facing an all-in raise from Eli Berg in the cutoff for 178,000.

After a little while in the tank, the player on the button called with AdKh for a pair of kings. Berg tabled QsTs for flush and straight draws.

The river was the 9s, giving Berg a flush to double up.

Eli Berg  –  465,000  (233 bb)
