$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Brotha Don't Win


New Zealand's Danny ‘Brotha D’ Leaoasavaii has just taken a small hit to his stack. Leaoasavaii was in a hand with just one opponent when a {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} flop was dealt. When both players checked on the flop, a {9-Clubs} was dealt on the turn.

Leaoasavaii led for 1,200 on the turn and his opponent called as a {6-Spades} landed on the river. This Leaoasavaii opted to check and his opponent fired out 5,000. After a few moments time, Leaoasavaii made the call.

When Leaoasavaii's opponent turned over {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}, Leaoasavaii tapped the felt and flipped over a single {j-}.
