Event #6: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Humberto Brenes Advances

• Level 6: 150-300, 25 ante

We got to the table with approximately 15,000 in the pot and Humberto Brenes all in. The board was {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{9-Spades} and Brenes's opponent was mulling over his decision, talking to the veteran poker professional to try and garner any type of reaction.

"Why so much?" he asked. "You've been talking the whole time and you're quiet now."

Brenes sat motionless, looking straight ahead.

"If I'm wrong, I'm not going to be upset about it," his opponent said. Moments later he made up his mind by stating "I call."

Brenes turned over {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} and his opponent shook his head and turned over the {K-Hearts}. "How does he always have it," he muttered to himself before leaving the table.
