Event #24: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Bye-Bye, Brenes

• Level 6: 300-600, 75 ante
Humberto Brenes

We got to the table right as the cards were being turned up for a preflop all in. Humberto Brenes' tournament life was on the line after he called all in for his short stack from the big blind when Maxim Lykov pushed him all in from the small blind.

Lykov: {K-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Brenes: {A-Hearts}{8-Spades}

The board came {2-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs} and Lykov's pair of kings was enough to send Brenes to the rail. The play at this table is now three-handed with Lykov in dominant chip position.
