Bernstein Raises the Roof

David Bernstein

The table folded around to the blinds, and David Bernstein open-shoved for the 860,000 he had left. Next door, Phil D'Auteuil looked down at {A-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} and made the call, and Bernstein's {K-Hearts} {8-Hearts} was an underdog to keep him around.

He was drawing live, though, and the {K-Spades} {7-Hearts} {4-Hearts} flop was about as good as it gets. It was good enough that the {A-Hearts} on the turn was further improvement, and Bernstein threw his arms up in the air to celebrate his now-certain double. The {7-Spades} river was meaningless, and D'Auteuil has given his neighbor a double up.
