Brammer One Card Away From Elimination

[user153638]
Christopher Brammer doubles up on the river.

Action folded to Christopher Brammer on the button and he moved all in for 430,000. Phil Hellmuth asked for a count from the big blind and ended up making the call.

Showdown
Hellmuth: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Brammer: {K-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Hellmuth used pocket fives to knock out Stephane Girault, and he was looking to do it to Brammer as well. The {8-Spades}{2-Hearts}{5-Hearts} made that a strong possibility as it gave Hellmuth a set, but it also gave Brammer a flush draw. The {K-Spades} turn was of no consequence, and Brammer needed to catch a non-eight heart on the river to stay alive. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {3-Hearts}. Brammer spiked his heart and his supporters went wild on the rail; meanwhile, Hellmuth sat silently while staring at the board.
