Defending Champion Steve Brecher Eliminated
Level 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Shooting Star (and defending WPT Bay 101 champion) Steve Brecher is all in preflop from the button with AK against Fang Tian's 77 in late position. The board comes 1086J3, and Tian wins the pot with his pocket sevens to eliminate Brecher and claim the $5,000 bounty and the autographed t-shirt.
The other players at the table were a little depressed that they didn't get to claim the bounty, because Brecher entered the day with an extremely short stack of 10,800. Tian actually entered the day with slightly fewer chips (10,400), but picked up just enough in the first half hour to cover Brecher and collect the bounty.
As one player put it, "The guy with the shortest stack at the table collects the bounty. How did that happen?"
