Robert Schulze raised under the gun to 240,000, Thomas Berryman reraised from the button to 650,000, and Schulze four-bet it to 2,090,000. Berryman thought it was an all-in and quickly called, but he still had 195,000 behind. So they would see a flop.

The flop came 8d3d3s, and Berryman quickly moved all in out of position for 195,000. The action was on Schulze, and he either shoved himself or called, and they turned over their cards.

Schulze:  AdQc
Berryman:  KsKd

Berryman needed his kings to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 4c, the river card was the Qd, and Berryman won the pot with his pocket kings to double up in chips.

Thomas Berryman  –  4,770,000  (60 bb)
Robert Schulze  –  460,000  (6 bb)
