Chris Brewer

Jim Collopy raised from the small blind to 825,000 with Js8d, and Chris Brewer called from the big blind with As8h.

The flop came 7s6s5h, Collopy checked, Brewer bet 650,000, and Collopy thought for a while before he called.

The turn card was the Ks, Collopy checked, Brewer bet 1,100,000, and Collopy thought for a while before he check-raised all in.

Brewer slammed some chips on the table in frustration, and then tanked for a while before he folded. Collopy took the pot.

Jim Collopy  –  19,925,000  (66 bb)
Chris Brewer  –  5,875,000  (20 bb)

Two hands later, Chris Brewer min-raised from the button to 600,000, Jim Collopy moved all in from the big blind, and Brewer tanked for a while before he called all in for 5,125,000 with Ah10c.

Collopy turned over 9h9d, and Brewer needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Kc7d3sQcKh, and Brewer turned a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Collopy won the pot with his pocket nines to eliminate Brewer in third place.
