Frank Brannan

As Level 1 was coming to an end, Frank Brannan was in a hand with the flop reading 9c4s2s. He bet 3,200 from the small blind and his opponent in middle position raised to 10,100. Brannan moved all in for 41,700 and the other player went into the tank.

After two minutes to think it through, he tossed in a black chip to call and the cards were tabled.

Brannan: 2c2d
Opponent: Td9d

Brannan was ahead with bottom set of deuces against top pair/ten kicker and they held as the board finished with the 6d turn and 4d river. They counted down the stacks and Brannan had his opponent covered by about 1,000.

Brannan is trying to bookend his series with great results. He started his LHPO run by finishing third out of 4,960 entries in Event 1 for a $175K payout.

Frank Brannan – 83,000
