We might just have a new chip leader after we walked up to see Fred Berger winning a huge pot to bust Scott Montgomery.
The board read with two hearts on the flop and Berger had for a flush draw on the flop that turned into trips by the end. Montgomery had for top pair on the flop and two pair by the end.
It appeared as though the 56,000 that Montgomery had in front of him went in on the river but no matter when it went in, it now belongs to Berger as Montgomery is out. After stacking up his chips, it looked like Berger might be the first to crack the 200,000 chip mark with around 207,000. With a little under a half hour left in the day, we’ll see if Berger can hold onto his big stack to end the day atop the leaderboard.
