Event #39: $2,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em/Omaha

Brenes Sends One to the Rail

• Level 2


A player in middle position raised to 200, Humberto Brenes called from the hijack, as did the player on the button and in the small blind.

The flop was {10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} and the player first to act checked. The preflop raiser bet out 600 and Brenes raised to 2,100. The player on the button thought for a minute before throwing out 6,000 and the player in the blinds folded. After a quick count, the next player got out of the way and it was back on Brenes. He grabbed his stack in one hand, looked back at his cards and threw in the rest. His opponent moved his own stack in and the hands were turned up.

Brenes; {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

Not only was Brenes' opponent coolered with top set over second set, but he even had an "Ace-blocker", meaning he had an Ace in his hand and Brenes had to have to two remaining Aces in order to be currently beating him. The turn was the {j-Hearts} and the river was the {2-Hearts}. Neither changed the result of the hand and Brenes chips up to 15,000 with that knockout blow.
