Brenes Spikes Straight on River to Survive


Humberto Brenes open-pushed all in for his last 8,900 and action folded around to the big blind, who tanked for a bit, but eventually made the call to put Brenes at risk.

Brenes: {K-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Big blind: {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}

"Kiiiiing!" Brenes announced.

Flop: {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}

A king for Brenes, but an ace for his opponent.

The {J-Clubs} turn changed nothing, however, the {Q-Hearts} river would give Brenes a straight, which was good for the double up to 20,000.
