Heartbreaking River for Brammer

Stephane Albertini hits his flush!

Not too long ago we saw Christopher Brammer catch a heart on the river to extend his tournament life, but now he was on the opposite end of the same situation. It happened when action folded to Stephane Albertini in the small blind and he moved all in for 615,000. Brammer took his time in the big before making the call with what turned out to be the best hand.

Albertini: {K-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Brammer: {A-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

The flops have been interesting so far today, and this one would be no different as it came down {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. Brammer paired his ace, but Albertini had picked up a flush draw. The {10-Clubs} river was nothing special, and Albertini was drawing to eight outs headed to the river. Wouldn't you know it, the {J-Hearts} plopped down and Albertini survived while delivering a crippling blow to Brammer's stack.
