Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Lyle in Style

Shamus • Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Three-time WSOP bracelet winner Lyle Berman (hijack) and his neighbor (cutoff) had built a pot of about 2,000 when the flop came {7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. Berman checked, his opponent bet 1,025, and Berman called. Both then checked the {4-Diamonds} turn.

The river brought the {3-Hearts} and a bet of 2,500 from Berman, prompting a fold from his opponent. Berman, who took fifth in the WSOP Main Event in 1989 (won by Phil Hellmuth), has gotten off to a positive start in his quest to match or improve on that finish. He now has 34,000.
