Opponent Misreads Hand Against Veldhuis, But Wins


Lex Veldhuis raised to 2,000 from the hijack seat and got a call from the two blinds. After the flop came down {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, action checked to Veldhuis and he bet 4,700. The small blind called and the big blind folded.

The {5-Clubs} landed on the turn and both players checked to see the {3-Clubs} land on the river. The small blind bet 4,000 and Veldhuis quickly tossed in the call.

The small blind tabled the {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}, but mentioned that he thought he had the {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} and had misread his hand.

"What the f***?!" said Veldhuis as he snapped his cards back for one more peek prior to tossing them into the muck. He's down to 45,000 now as the table is being broken.
