Brammer One Card Away From Elimination

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.

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.
