Brandon Lulov

Brandon Lulov raised to 120,000 and Matt Berkey called.

The flop was Kd10c8h and Berkey check-called 100,000 from Lulov.

The turn was the 4c and Berkey check-called 400,000 from Lulov.

The river was the 9h, Berkey checked, and Lulov moved all in for 1,150,000. Berkey tanked for about three minutes before he called.

Lulov tabled AhKs for a pair of kings with an ace kicker.

“Wow, nice hand,” said Berkey, as he showed a defeated Kc2c.
Matt Berkey  –  1,040,000  (17 bb)
