Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

We Finally Caught Berry Johnston in a Hand And All He Got Was This Superb Double

Berry Johnston

We haven’t seen former 1986 WSOP Main Event champ and five time WSOP bracelet holder Berry Johnston in many hands today and he’s hovered around the original starting stack for most of the day. But we just found Johnston on the button and all in on the {Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop against the player in the big blind.

Johnston: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}
Big Blind: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Johnston was in dominant position for the double up unless his opponent could nail running kings or running straight cards. The {J-} on the turn did help the big blind to make a Broadway draw but the river was the {K-Hearts} to give the player an inferior top pair to Johnston’s over pair of aces who doubled up.
