James Calderaro raised to 5,000 from the hijack, Luke Brereton called from the cutoff and Luckenson Pericles three-bet to 15,000 from the button. Calderaro folded, Brereton four-bet all in for about 55,000 and Pericles called with 8d8s, trailing Brereton’s AsAc.

The flop came 10s8c3s to give Pericles a set of eights. However, the turn was the Ad to give Brereton the lead with a set of aces. The river was the 6c, locking up the double for Brereton.

Luke Brereton – 120,000 (60 bb)
Luckenson Pericles – 235,000 (118 bb)
