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

Brito Eventually Reveals His Hand

[user169806] • Level 6: 150-300, 0 ante

Fernando Brito opened the betting with a raise to 750 from under the gun. Nobody wanted to take the Portuguese businessman/poker pro until the action passed to the United Kingdom's Carlo Citrone on the button. Citrone called and the dealer got to work spreading the {A-Clubs}{4-Spades}{7-Diamonds} flop.

Brito tapped the table and checked. Citrone checked behind.

The turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and Brito instantly reached for chips, grabbed 1,200 worth and bet with them. Citrone asked for a look at how many chips Brito had behind (approximately 5,300) before taking a few moments to make his decision.

"Will you show me an ace?" said Citrone as he folded.

Brito mucked.

"Ah, no ace!" said Citrone.

"I've not got an ace," replied Brito.

"Queen, then?"


"Better than a queen?"

"I had a set," said Brito and with that the dealer started passing new cards to the players.
