Pavel Veksler

Pavel Veksler raised to 60,000 under the gun with {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. Matt Berkey, from one seat over, three-bet to 175,000 with {k-Spades}{10-Spades}. Action folded back to Veksler who four-bet to 375,000. Berkey called.

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Veksler bet 250,000. Berkey called.

The dealer burned and turned the {9-Spades} that was checked around to the {j-Diamonds} river. Veksler fired 900,000. Berkey went deep into the tank but proceeded to make the call, and Veksler took down the pot with his rivered straight.
