Event #12: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Brecher Takes a Big One

• Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante
Steve Brecher

We arrived to a flop of {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and 650 in the middle. Steve Brecher had led for 250 from the cutoff and Jeremy Ausmus raised to 900 from the button. A third player called the bet from Ausmus and Brecher announded "raise pot." The bet was 4,250 total to Ausmus who thought for while, before finally folding.

The middle position player made the call and turned over {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}, but he needed help as Brecher tabled {7-Spades}{7-Clubs} for the set. Neither the ace or the diamond came however, as the board ran out {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts} and Brecher took the pot and busted his opponent.

Ausmus said after the hand that he "folded a big flush."
