Connor “NYR9414” Berkowitz:
Phil “Lumestackin” Hellmuth:
Berkowitz had flopped top two pair but it was no good as Hellmuth had a set. Only a king on the river would eliminate Hellmuth, but it wasn’t meant to be as the peeled off instead to send a big double to the “Poker Brat.” Berkowitz went bust in 68th place a short time later.
