Hairabedian Lets Kurganov Pick

Roger Hairabedian

The board read {8-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{Q-Spades} when the action was on Roger Hairabedian. He put out three bets right in front of his stack, and his opponent Igor Kurganov had to pick.

"You choose, I bet," Hairabedian said as he put out 18,000, 30,000 and 50,000-chip bets.

Kurganov decided on 30,000 and immediately Hairabedian pushed that bet forward.

"Now I've confused myself," Kurganov said as he smiled, and the other players at the table cracked a smile.

"The next time pick this one," Hairabedian said as he pointed to the 50,000-chip bet. "If I give you a gift I want to do a big gift," the French WSOPE bracelet winner said. "When I speak a lot I'm strong," Hairabedian added as Kurganov remained confused.

Eventually the German folded, and Hairabedian picked up the pot.
