Bump for Brokos Near Night's End


Andrew Brokos was just involved in an interesting hand with Pacome Chavignon which resulted in a big bump for Brokos and a hit to Chavignon. Brokos, recall, has a string of cashes in the WSOP Main Event to his credit, including finishing within the top 100 three of the last four years (35th, 2008; 87th, 2010; and 53rd, 2011).

The preflop action was related to us second hand, but it sounds like Chavignon opened with a raise, Brokos reraised, Chavignon four-bet, Brokos reraised again, and Chavignon called. The flop then came {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Chavignon fired a bet of 10,000 that Brokos called. The pair then checked down the {J-Clubs} turn and {7-Spades} river.

Chavignon tabled {A-Spades}{8-Spades} — he'd flopped two pair, then the jack on the turn had counterfeited his hand. Brokos showed {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, that turn jack having made his hand best.
