Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Berman Doubles, Then Busts

• Level 13
Lyle Berman - Eliminated

2-7 Triple Draw

Action folded to Mike Leah in the small blind and he put out a raise. A short-stacked Lyle Berman moved all in from the big blind for his last 14,500 and Leah called. Leah took one on the first draw while Berman opted for three. On the second draw, both players pulled one. For the final draw, Leah took one and Berman stood pat.

Berman: {10-}{9-}{7-}{6-}{4-}
Leah: {7-}{6-}{3-}{2-}

Leah squeezed out his final card to see that it was the {A-Hearts}. He failed to best Berman's ten-nine and Berman shipped the double to 29,000.

Unfortunately for Berman, he was still short-stacked and was eliminated from play soon after.
