Event #4: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Bruning Can’t Find a Heart

• Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Three players had put in 6,000, the small blind Louis Bruning then called and Lauri Pesonen in the big blind declared that he was looking for a “nitty” hand to fold. It looked like he couldn’t find it as he put in the extra 3,000 to call and they went five way to the flop of {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts}.

Bruning immediately moved all in from the small blind and Pesonen made the call. Seat one asked for a count but folded.

Bruning showed {j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. “Oh you’re got a big draw again.” Pesonen said turning over the {k-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

The turn {5-Clubs} and river {9-Diamonds} saw Bruning eliminated and Pesonen gather some much needed chips.
