Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

ElkY Scares Kid Poker

• Level 6


Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier fired a bet into a almost 30,000-chip pot after the river and Daniel "Kid Poker" Negreanu sat contemplating the call.

Grospellier: {x-}{x-} / {q-Spades}{j-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Diamonds} / {x-}
Negreanu: {x-}{x-} / {9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{j-Spades} / {x-}

Negreanu asked if he'd hit the river, but got no reply from Grospellier. Eventually he called and was shown {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{a-Hearts} for queens up. Negreanu mucked and Grospellier claimed he'd made the hand on fifth.

"I couldn't raise you," he said. "Your board was too scary."
