Event #39: $2,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em/Omaha

Rodney Brown Eliminated in 2nd Place ($191,618)

Rodney Brown


Rodney Brown raised to 100,000 on the button and Mitch Schock made it 300,000 in the big blind. Brown made the call to see a flop of {10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Schock bet out 400,000 and Brown repotted all in and Brown wasted little time in making the call.

Brown: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
Schock: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Both had huge hands, Brown was holding top pair and a straight draw against Schock's aces and the nut flush draw for a pot that was well over the 2 million mark.

The turn was the {6-Clubs} and as simple as that, it was all over as Schock fist-pumped making the nut flush. The {9-Hearts} river was academic and Brown, who had less than a couple of hours ago been one card away from winning the bracelet, was now out in second place and will no doubt be bitterly disappointed. He will have over $190,000 as a consolation prize however.
