Brammer out fifth in WSOP $10k six max

Friday, 6 July 2012

Chris Brammer has fallen just short in his attempt to win his maiden WSOP bracelet. The Briton busted out in fifth place in the $10k Six Max event and can count himself unlucky after running into a pretty cold deck.

Brammer was extremely well placed with five players left but lost a huge chunk of his stack in a hand with Keith Lehr. The chips hit the middle on a 8h-4c-8c-5c board with the Briton in front with Jc-10c for a made flush with Lehr holding pocket aces, including the ace of clubs for the nut redraw. The 2c on the river sent Brammer from the chip lead to the short stack in an instant.

It was all over for Brammer soon after and once again the deck was running cold. With the blinds at 40k/80k with a 10k ante Lehr opened to 200,000. Brammer went all in with pocket Jacks and Lehr made the call with Queens. The board blanked out for Brammer, sending him to the rail in fifth.

Lehr will return later today to battle it out for the bracelet with Gregory Merson.

The other Briton to make the final day, Roberto Romanello, had earlier busted in 22nd place for a score of $35,422.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1 1,136,197
2 701,757
3 Shannon Shorr 455,362
4 Eddy Sabat 300,753
5 Christopher Brammer 200,502
6 Andrew Lichtenberger 140,351
