We arrived to the table with three players in the pot and the board showing . A player in middle position checked and Eric Berger bet 5,800. Yifan Zheng made the call and the remaining player folded. The river was the and the action was on Berger.
Zheng, a Boston hat perched sideways on his head, shuffled chips in his left hand while watching Berger who eventually would check. Zheng made a bet of 8,500 and now it was Berger who was studying his opponent. Berger held three T5,000 chips in his hand, holding them aloft as if he wanted to drop them into the middle of the table. He decided against it, though, and mucked his hand. Despite the loss, Berger is up to 140,000 chips and has been steadily accumulating throughout the early portion of the day.
