Brecher Gone in 31st Place

Steve Brecher Busted

Action folded to Steve Brecher on the button and he raised to 275,000. Khoa Nguyen was next to act in the small blind and he three-bet to 760,000. The big blind got out of the way and action was back on Brecher. He leaned back in his chair, took a swig of his water, and then announced that he was all in for 3.78 million more. Nguyen snap-called and Brecher knew he was in trouble.

Brecher: {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}
Nguyen: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}

Whether it was an ill-timed move or bad read, it didn't change the fact that Brecher was in a tough spot. The {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop gave him some added out as any three would make him a wheel, but neither the {K-Diamonds} turn nor {J-Spades} river gave him enough to win the hand.

Brecher was eliminated from the tournament in 31st place while Nguyen chipped up to 16.5 million.
