WPT BPO: 5th Place - Brecher

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Steve Brecher (Reno, NV)

Steve Brecher completed the small blind, then Ben Hamnett raised from the big.

Steve called and the flop came 98♣7.

Steve checked.  Ben bet 565k.  Steve shoved.  Ben called.

Steve had T9♠ for top pair with open-ender.  Ben had KT for the same open-ended straight-draw along with a flush draw and overcard.

Turn was the 8, giving Ben the flush.  Steve needed to boat up on the river to survive, but the river washed up the A♣.  Ben chipped up to over 15 million.

Steve Brecher finished in 5th place, earning $206,821.

Steve has been a tournament pro for 9 years now.  He won his WPT title in 2009 in the Bay 101 Shooting Star event.
