Brunson's Main Event Comes to an End

ajlamers • Level 23: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante
Todd Brunson

Oliver Bithell and Todd Brunson were heads-up in a pot with around 300,000 in the middle. The board read {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and Brunson checked from the big blind. Bithell tossed in a bet of 215,000 in the cutoff and Brunson called.

The river brought the {7-Hearts} and Brunson checked again. Bithell slid out enough chips to cover Brunson's remaining stack of around 500,000. Brunson thought for a moment with his tournament life on the line and made the call. Bithell turned over {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} for a full house while Brunson could only muster {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for two pair.
