"It's a Race"

[user153638]

Ben Roberts opened for 9,500 under the gun only to have Salman Behbehani move all in for roughly 45,000. Action folded back around to Roberts, he made the call, and upon seeing his opponent's hand said, "It's a race."

Showdown
Behbehani: {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Roberts: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

Indeed it was, but Behbehani was the one with the best hand and looking to dodge big cards. Unfortunately for him, the {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{J-Clubs} flop delivered Roberts a pair of jacks and the lead. Neither the {10-Clubs} turn nor {2-Diamonds} river helped Behbehani, and he collected his things and exited the tournament floor.
