Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Darcourt Holding Court

Shamus • Level 13: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Super big stack Guillaume Darcourt opened for 6,500 from under the gun and it folded around to the player on the button who called. The small blind called as well. The flop came {K-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs}, it checked to the button who bet 15,000 and only Darcourt called. The turn was the {7-Spades} and both checked.

The river brought the {5-Diamonds} and a quick bet of 18,000 from Darcourt. As the break began and players left the Amazon, the conversation between the two remaining players -- started with cards and chips -- continued in words.

"Why so little?" asked Darcourt's opponent. "Because I want you to call," came the reply. "Or you can raise." "I should've raised preflop," said the button. "What do you do now?" replied Darcourt.

The conversation continued, with the tournament director coming over to remind Darcourt not to say anything to induce or not to induce action. Finally his opponent called. "Two pair," said Darcourt, flipping over {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. His opponent, disgusted, flung his cards, showing his {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}.

Darcourt goes to break with 951,500.
