Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Nine Ball, Corner Pocket

[user253757] • Level 4: 75-150, 0 ante

We just caught the tail end of a truly brutal beat, with Tom Braband coming up on the right end of a counterfeit to remember.

When we passed the table Braband had just called an all-in bet of 2,000 while tabling {k-}{k-} for an overpair to the board. The flop read {9-}{8-}{3-} when the money went in, but Braband was drawing extremely thin when his opponent revealed {3-}{3-} for a flopped set of treys.

The turn card came {9-} to double Braband's arsenal of outs from two to four, as a third nine on the river would leave his opponent's set of threes unplayable.

River: {9-}

Just like that the miracle card came, and Braband notched the knockout while building a respectable stack heading into the next break.
