Event #54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Brenes Chomps One Down

[user66118] • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

We joined the put just in time to see Humberto Brenes bet 1,500 into a pot of about 2,500 in a {7-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {5-Hearts} flop. His opponent was out of position in the big blind, and he check-called. The turn came the {4-Hearts}, and the big blind check-called another 2,500, leaving himself just 1,100 behind. Brenes bet 1,000 on the {Q-Hearts} river, saying something about leaving the last T100 alone. His opponent check-raised it all in, though, and Brenes' {7-} {7-} was the winner.

Brenes is up to 21,000 after that knockout.
