Daniel Alaei bet 8,200 on the {8-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades}{3-Clubs} board heads up against Chun Lei Zhou, who made the call in position. On the {q-Hearts} river, Alaei checked, and Zhou bet 16,000. Alaei counted out his stack and put his palm to his forehead as he considered the bet. Finally, after a sigh, he called.

Zhou looked at his hand for a moment before tossing {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts} into the middle for a pair of threes. To his surprise, Alaei mucked his hand, and the dealer pushed Zhou the pot.
