$1,650 Main Event

Former Champ Byrnes Fades the World

BrandonTemple • Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Bill Byrnes got his last 180,000 in chips preflop from the cutoff and was at risk against BJ McBrayer on the button.

Bill Byrnes: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
BJ McBrayer: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

McBrayer flopped a flush draw on the {k-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{q-Clubs} flop, and picked up a few more outs when the {10-Hearts} turn gave him a nine for an additional winner. The {7-Hearts} river bricked off, and Byrnes, who won this very event in March during Season XV, breathed a sigh of relief as he stacked up his newfound chips.
