We just ran into Dutch poker talent Thomas Brader and he has over 50,000 in front of him. Brader told us he got those new chips quite some time ago, well before the dinner break.
Brader had opened under-the-gun with pocket aces and saw his next door neighbor three bet him. Brader went with the four bet because, in his words, "his opponent would never fold in that spot anyway". The gentleman acted like Brader expected by calling. Brader went for a bet on the flop (), bet on the turn () and shove on the river (). His opponent called the flop and turn, but elected to fold his queens face up on the river.
Brader, who has a brother who's had more live results than Thomas himself by the way, finished third in a €2,000 Turbo Bounty side event during EPT Barcelona this season for €19,600. Brader shares a table with some other super stars: Manig Loeser, Nicolas Levi and Eugene Katchalov are also seated at table 24.
