Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Berda Gutted


Next year we might try to keep a running tally of all of the players eliminated holding aces, all in pre-flop. We know for sure that Tomer Berda's name would be on that list. Berda called all in for just 70,000 after Mark Meloche opened with a standard raise and John Dolan three-bet to 120,000. Meloche folded to the three-bet, leaving Dolan's {10-}{8-} alone to try to crack Berda's pocket aces. Crack them he did, in a most rude way. A flop of {9-}{6-}{6-} gave Dolan a gutshot straight draw that filled on the river {7-}.
