Nines Are Good for Thompson

SandraBarbour • Level 24: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

Action folded to Quinn Bruno, who limped from the small blind. Alan Thompson, in the big blind, raised to 42,000. Bruno stuck around with a call.

The flop came {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Bruno checked. Thompson bet 40,000. Bruno check-called.

The dealer burned and turned the {3-Diamonds} and Bruno check-called another bet of 80,000 from Thompson.

The {7-Clubs} filled up the board. Both players opted to check. Bruno turned over {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Thompson showed {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} to take down the pot.
