Brenes Bows Out In Style

[user252447] • Ниво 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Humberto Brenes is out, tooting his horn and getting a round of applause from the remaining players. He fell short of making yet another cash at this year’s WSOP. He didn’t have much left and in it went with {k-Clubs}{10-Hearts} which found him calling for a king when his opponent called with {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and the Costa Rican was out.

Huck Seed got his nub in with [txt x] but jammed it over a player who had {j-}{j-}.

PJ Jafari still seems to be playing a lot of pots but the momentum has slipped a little bit.

In a recent pot Jafari opened for 1,700 and got a call from the big blind. The flop was {10-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{j-Spades} and the big blind led out for 1,600. Jafari made the call and they went to the turn card {10-Clubs}. A further bet of 2,600 persuaded Jafari to lay it down.
