WPT BPO: 5th Place - Brecher

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Steve Brecher (Reno, NV)
$206,821

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.
