Busquet Slays the Shark

[user153638] • Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Humberto Brenes

Action folded around to Costa Rica's Humberto Brenes on the button and he opened big to 6,000. Olivier Busquet was in the small blind and opted to play back with a three-bet to 20,000. The big blind folded and then Brenes stared his opponent down before sliding his stack of 60,000 or so in the middle. Busquet snap-called.

Brenes: {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Busquet: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

"I didn't believe you," Brenes told Busquet, who had the best of it. Even so, Brenes was drawing to two live cards. That changed though when the {q-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop delivered Busquet a pair of aces.

"Just to make it interesting," Kevin Pollak said just after the dealer burned and turned the {4-Clubs}, which gave Brenes a flush draw. It certainly was exciting, but Brenes would find no luck on the river as the useless {2-Hearts} peeled off.
