ajlamers • Level 9: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

No-Limit Hold'em

Chris Brewer raised to 10,000 in the hijack and was called by John Racener on the button and Philip Sternheimer in the small blind. The flop came {k-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs} and the action checked around to the {10-Spades} on the turn.

Sternheimer led out with a bet of 42,000 and Brewer raised to 125,000. Racener quickly folded and Sternheimer ripped all in. Brewer called off his stack of around 250,000 and the cards were tabled.

Chris Brewer: {8-}{8-}
Philip Sternheimer: {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Brewer flopped a set of eights but Sternheimer turned a straight. The river was the {5-Clubs} to give Sternheimer a flush and Brewer was eliminated.
