Berkey Loses Two Early

• Taso 25: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

Hand #1 Matt Perrins opened to 50,000 from the hijack, before Seth Berger raised it up to 151,000 from the small blind. The bet was enough to take down the first hand of the final table, as Perrins folded his hand.

Hand #2 Antonio Buonanno opened to 50,000 from the cut-off, and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #3 The action folded around to Seth Berger from the cut-off, who opened to 52,000. Matt Berkey then made the call from the big blind, as both saw the flop come {7-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. Berkey check called a continuation bet of 72,000 from Berger, before the {A-Spades} fell on the turn. Berkey checked once again, as Berger quickly placed out a bet of 170,000 in chips. Berkey paused for a moment, before releasing his hand.

Hand #4 Bounanno opened to 50,000, and took down another pot.

Hand #5 Matt Berkey opened to 50,000 from the button, before Joe Serock bumped it up to 135,000 from the small blind. Berkey called, as both players saw the flop come {10-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds}. Serock threw out a continuation bet of 200,000, which was enough to take down the pot.
