Bellande Battling It Out

Jean-Robert Bellande started the action early during a recent hand by making it 525 from early position. Two players on his immediate left quickly made the call, while the next person in line moved all in for 1,275. Bellande along with the other two middle position players completed and four players got to see the flop.

With a {9-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} flop Bellande took control and pushed 2,000 in the middle. One of the two middle position players folded while the other made the call.

A {6-Clubs} turn allowed for both players to check. Action repeated itself on the river when the {10-Clubs} made an appearance and both players knuckled the table. Cards were about to be turned over when Jean-Robert announced "I have a nine" to which his middle position opponent flipped over his {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a pair of tens. With a sigh from Bellande he mucked his cards. The hand wasn't over yet though, as the short stack who moved all in preflop still had cards. However her {A-Spades}{k-Diamonds} couldn't trump a pair of tens and she was eliminated from the tournament.
