Event #29: $2,500 10-Game Mix / Six Handed

Bellande or Brunette?

• Nivo 7

2-7 Single Draw

An unknown player opened to 600 from early position, and Jean-Robert Bellande three-bet to 1,800 from the cutoff seat. The button called, Daniel Makowsky called from the big blind, and the initial raiser folded to let them draw three-handed. Bellande patted while the other two took one card apiece. The table checked to the player in position, and he fired 5,400 at the pot. That folded the Makowsky in the middle, but Bellande was not folding. He took his time squirming in his chair, then said something like, "I feel like I'm slowrolling, because I'm definitely calling." After another squirm or two, he made the call, and his opponent made a motion to muck.

Bellande showed his {9-}{8-}{7-}{6-}{3-}, and it was easily good. The other player indicated he'd been drawing to a seven perfect, but the pot goes to Bellande, pushing him up to 43,000.
