Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Full House for Brunson

Pot-Limit Omaha

From under the gun, Tom Chambers raised to 900. His raise was called by John Esposito in the hijack seat, Brian Hastings in the cutoff seat, Doyle Brunson on the button and finally David "Bakes" Baker from the big blind.

The group of five saw a {J-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop come down and Baker was first up. He checked, as did Chambers. Esposito fired in a bet of 2,500 and Hastings folded. Brunson called before the other two got out of the way.

Down to two players, the turn was the {4-Hearts}. Esposito led for 3,500 and Brunson made the call. The river was the {2-Clubs} and Esposito checked. Brunson also checked.

Esposito showed the {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades} for trip threes with a ten kicker.

"What's he got?" asked Brunson, leaning a little bit over the table to get a better look at Esposito's hand. The dealer slid the hand to the middle of the table so Brunson could see better. Brunson then showed the {6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades} for a full house, threes full of deuces. He won the pot and moved to 170,000 in chips. Esposito dropped back to 143,000.
