Seth Berger (Woodbury, NY)
Blinds 20k/40k/4k ante
Seth Berger was on a yo-yo three-handed and makes his last stand on one of the first hands of the new level.
Berger is all in for 650k with pocket 6s against the A 10 offsuit of Vimy Ha.
Ha hits an ace on the turn and ends Berger's day in 3rd place.
"I can't complain," says Berger, "I was pretty card dead three-handed."
This is Berger's largest career cash and the recent UCLA graduate says the money will help his aspirations of playing poker full time. He'd love to play the Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship event, but a prior commitment will keep him out of the tournament.
Ha has a 2-1 chip lead over Tim Bryan as they begin heads up play.
