Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

The Downfall of Steve Brecher

• Taso 17: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Steve Brecher

Steve Brecher's comeback has come to an end. It happened when Vladimir Shchemelev opened for 12,000 from middle position and Brecher three-bet all in for 45,000 from late position. Scott Palmer then four-bet to 100,000 from the small blind and Shchemelev got out of the way.

Palmer: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Brecher: {a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

Brecher's best chance of survival was to catch an ace, and he found one on the {6-Spades}{a-Spades}{j-Clubs} flop. Unfortunately for him, Palmer also found a jack for a set. The {K-Diamonds} turn left Brecher drawing dead, and after the {7-Diamonds} was put out on the river he took his leave from the 2014 WSOP Main Event.
