Brenes Not Tight

Folded to Humberto Brenes in middle position, he raised the it up to 800. Only the small blind would call. Both players then checked down the {3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{9-Clubs} board. At showdown, Brenes tabled {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, which was enough to send his opponent's cards into the muck and the small pot to Brenes.

"Oh shit, your not tight!" said Ari Engel to Brenes as he showed the cards.

Brenes then said a few thing which we couldn't make sense of, but it sounded like he was suggesting the pair was the best hand he had seen. Engel then said, "Well, what have you been folding for the last hour if your playing that?"
