Jean-Robert Bellande, who recently announced that he plans to play the $1 million Big One for One Drop, just picked up two pots over on Table 460.
In the first hand, we reached the tabled after the first draw. The action checked to Brian Tate, who bet, and Bellande check-raised. Tate called. On the second draw, Bellande drew one, and Tate stood pat. Bellande check-called a bet, and drew one more card. He bet out, and Tate called.
Bellande tabled for an eighty-seven, and Tate mucked.
On the very next hand, Bellande had the button and raised. James Hoeppner and Tate called from the blinds, and on the first draw, they discarded two cards and three cards respectively. Bellande stood pat, and he bet when it was checked to him. Both players called.
On the second draw, Hoeppner took one, Tate two, and Bellande stood pat again. The action checked to Bellande who bet, and only Hoeppner called. Hoeppner drew one more on the last draw, Bellande stood pat, and Hoeppner check-folded to a bet.
