Brenes is No Longer Swimming with the Sharks

ElleSriracha • Level 12: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante
Humberto Brenes

Scott Seiver opened to 6,500 from under the gun and Humberto Brenes three-bet to 20,000 from late position. Upeshka De Silva was in the small blind and four-bet shoved for 131,500. Seiver got out of the way and Brenes snapped De Silva off.

De Silva: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Brenes: {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

Brenes saw he was in rough shape and said, "every time I raise you have something!"

The dealer put out a flop reading {6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Brenes still needed to pair his ace or hit running cards to avoid elimination. The turn was the {4-Hearts} for some outs to chop, but the river was the {j-Hearts} and Brenes was eliminated.
