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 for an overpair to the board. The flop read when the money went in, but Braband was drawing extremely thin when his opponent revealed for a flopped set of treys.
The turn card came 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.
Just like that the miracle card came, and Braband notched the knockout while building a respectable stack heading into the next break.
