Action folded around to Costa Rica's Humberto Brenes on the button and he opened big to 6,000. Olivier Busquet was in the small blind and opted to play back with a three-bet to 20,000. The big blind folded and then Brenes stared his opponent down before sliding his stack of 60,000 or so in the middle. Busquet snap-called.
"I didn't believe you," Brenes told Busquet, who had the best of it. Even so, Brenes was drawing to two live cards. That changed though when the flop delivered Busquet a pair of aces.
"Just to make it interesting," Kevin Pollak said just after the dealer burned and turned the , which gave Brenes a flush draw. It certainly was exciting, but Brenes would find no luck on the river as the useless peeled off.
