Brammer Doubles; Staszko Gone


An under-the-gun player opened for 525 and cleared the field all the way to the player in the small blind, who three-bet to 1,500. Chris Brammer then called from the big blind, the original raiser folded, and it was heads-up to the {9-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop. The small blind proceeded to check-call a bet of 2,200, and then both players checked the {A-Clubs} turn.

When the {2-Diamonds} peeled off on the river, the small blind checked and Brammer moved all in for 10,250. The small blind quickly called and tabled {10-Diamonds}{10-}, but it was no good as Brammer held {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}.

Meanwhile, the Czech Republic's Martin Staszko, who you may remember as the runner-up in the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event, was eliminated after running kings into aces.
