Greg Brletich has played patiently for both days of play and his long game of waiting finally culminated into a monster pot that saw Frank Guerra crippled.
Brletich raised from the cutoff to 30,000 and found a call from Guerra in the small blind. The flop ran out K♠Q♦9♣ and Guerra checked to Brletich who continued for 30,000 more. Guerra called and the 7♣ came on the turn. Guerra checked again to Brletich and he kept up the aggression to the tune of 75,000. Guerra check-raised to 200,000 and Brletich beat him to the pot moving all-in for 111,000 more.
Guerra called and saw the bad news when Brletich turned over K♦K♣ to leave Guerrra’s 9♠7♣ drawing dead.
With the pot, Brletich now sits with 800,000 while Guerra was left with the crumbs of a single blind and found elimination a few hands later. Guerra will earn $4,400 for his run after turning a satellite victory into a main event cash.
