Berman Hits River To Bust Johnson

Lyle Berman

Pot-Limit Omaha

From under the gun, Marco Johnson limped in and action folded to Lyle Berman on the button. He raised the pot and made it 10,800 to go. The blinds folded and then Johnson made the call.

The {9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} rolled out on the flop and Johnson checked. Berman tossed out 25,200 and Johnson took a minute to make the call. From there, the {5-Diamonds} landed on the turn. After another minute of thought, Johnson moved all in for approximately 71,000. Berman quickly called.

Johnson: {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
Berman: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}

Johnson had flopped a straight and flush draw, but turned a set to take the lead. Berman needed a six or a heart on the river to win the pot and bust Johnson, but Johnson did have some blockers against Berman's draw.

The river completed the board with the {Q-Hearts} — it was red and it was a heart. Berman nailed his flush and won the pot, sending Johnson out the door and moving up to 325,000 in chips.
