It was folded around to Sammy Farha in the cutoff who also folded but when he did so, his cards collided mid-air with the dealer’s arm to expose . It was then folded to Lex Veldhuis in the small blind who raised to 625 only to be met with a three-bet to 1,800 from the big blind. Veldhuis made the call and check-called his opponent’s bet of 1,800 on the flop.
On the turn, Veldhuis again check-called the big blind’s bet, this time for 4,500 while both players checked the on the river. Veldhuis turned over for eights up which was good for the win when the big blind mucked, unless Farha would have stuck around with his monster of course.
