Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Why Such a Big Bet?


Elie Payan and Jean-Robert Bellande were heads up with the board reading {q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Payan bet out 4,000 from the small blind, and Bellande called. The river was the {9-Diamonds}, and Payan led for 16,000.

Bellande went into the tank. "Why such a big bet?" he repeated over, and over again.

He finally called, and Payan mucked. Bellande showed {q-Spades}{10-Hearts} for a pair of queens, and raked in the pot.
