Brian Reeder

Neil Patel raised to 40,000 from middle position, and Brian Reeder three-bet shoved for 438,000 from the small blind. Mike Thompson announced a call in the big blind, and Patel folded.

Brian Reeder: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Mike Thompson: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Reeder picked up two outs when the {10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{j-Hearts} flop gave him a Broadway draw. The {6-Diamonds} turn was a brick, but Reeder drilled the {k-Diamonds} river for his straight.

"Yes! Bam!" a jubliant Reeder said with a fist pump, and he picked up the double.
