The action folded to Jean-Robert Bellande on the button, and he moved all in for 725,000. Tony Gregg folded out of the big blind, and Connor Drinan tank-called in the big blind.

Bellande: {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Drinan: {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

"I'm going to have the best hand hold up for one time," Bellande announced, standing out of his chair. "One time for the One Drop."

There was a delay before the flop as the cameras shifted to capture the right shots, and Bellande started to call for cards even though he was ahead.

"Ace, baby, baby," he said. "Or two sixes. Or an ace with two clubs."

Finally the dealer rapped the felt, and she fanned two clubs, but the {10-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop gave Drinan a leading pair of jacks. The {k-Spades} on the turn then gave Drinan two pair, while also giving Bellande a Broadway draw. But the {a-Diamonds} bricked off on the river, giving Bellande a meaningless pair of aces.

Dejected, Bellande gazed at the board for a few seconds before taking Drinan's hand. The satellite winner had immediately stood up to shake JRB's hand, but he didn't see it initially. Bellande then grabbed his backpack and exited the tournament area.
