Saab Starts the Banter

In a three-way pot it was checked down to the turn with the board reading {J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}; a player in middle position led out for 200 before David Saab check-raised out of the small blind to 500.

His opponent made the call before Saab made it 300 on the {8-Hearts} river, only to be met with a raise to 800. "Yes rivering a straight on me . . . well done," and Saab laid his hand down.
