Brian Meinders has already had a successful summer, managing to take down his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet in Event 25: $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout. Meinders has had a good start here on Day 2 of the Main Event.
We recently caught the action of a hand between Meinders and Michael Lipman. By the time we arrived at the table there was a flop showing and Meinders was on the button with Lipman set to act. A bet of 2,500 was sent Meinders way, with him making the call to see a land on the turn. This time Lipman checked and Meinders bet 2,500. Lipman called and a was dealt on the river. Another check from Lipman would see Meinders again bet 2,500 and Lipman would again call.
Meinders pair of eights was enough to trump Lipman's holding as Meinders raked in the hand little pot.
