Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Bellande Busts

Jean-Robert Bellande did not survive this day.

Jeff Banghart opened to 130,000 from middle position only to have Jean-Robert Bellande move all in for 815,000 from the button.

With the action on Duy Le in the big blind, he cut out a re-raise amounting to 1,350,000. Although the four-bet had both players covered, it was technically not enough, and Le was forced to make it 1,490,000 to go.

"Oh boy! I need a second" stated Banghart as he deliberated for over two minutes before open-folding {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}.

Bellande: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Le: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

With Bellande on his feet, the dealer dropped a {K-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop to leave Bellande drawing to a ten or running cards for a straight.

The {5-Clubs} on the turn cut out all of Bellande's backdoor outs, and left him with just one of the lone tens in the deck.

"Ten please dealer" pleaded Bellande as he awaited his Main Event fate.

Unfortunately for BrokeLivingJRB, the river would fall the {J-Diamonds} to see him eliminated and sent to the exit amongst a round of applause.
