When we arrived at Table 365, the flop was {7-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. Phil Laak had 1,500 sitting in front of him, Jean-Robert Bellande had 6,000, and Talal Shakerchi had an identical 6,000. Laak folded.

The turn was the {5-Hearts}. Bellande quickly fired out 10,000 and Shakerchi tanked for less than 30 seconds before calling.

The river was a repeat five — the {5-Spades} — and Bellande immediately splashed 14,000 in front of him. Shakerchi made another insta-call, and Bellande revealed {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for top pair. It was no good against Shakerchi's {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}, however, and the British high roller won the pot.
