Todd Brunson

Matt Grapenthien: {x-}{x-} / {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Todd Brunson: {x-}{x-} / {q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

Grapenthien brought it in, then called after Brunson completed. Brunson check-called a bet on fourth street, then led out with his pair of queens. Grapenthien folded.

Grapenthien: {x-}{x-} / {4-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} / {x-}
Brunson: {x-}{x-} / {k-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{3-Clubs} / {x-}

Grapenthien brought it in, Brunson completed, and Grapenthien called. Brunson check-called bets on fourth and fifth, then led out on sixth. Grapenthien raised, Brunson called, and Brunson led out again on seventh.

This time, Grapenthien just called, and he mucked when Brunson turned over {9-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Spades} fir nines and deuces.

Grapenthien: {x-}{x-} / {7-Spades}{8-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{3-Spades} / {x-}
Brunson: {x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{2-Spades} / {x-}

Brunson check-called a bet on fourth street, then led out on each subsequent street. Grapenthien called him down, and Brunson turned over {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for aces up. Grapenthien frustratedly showed {k-Spades}{7-Hearts}{x-} for an inferior two pair.
