Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

"Nice River"

[user169806] • Taso 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

We caught the action as Will Failla (cutoff) had called a raise of what looked like 25,000 from Jean-Pascal Savard in the big blind.

Despite the huge pot created preflop, the action postflop was not as exciting as both players checked down the {J-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{6-Spades} board. Savard bet 20,000 on the arrival of the {A-Diamonds} river and Failla quickly folded.

"Nice river," said Failla, but Savard refused to confirm or deny if the river had helped him and he mucked his hand.

A short while later, Failla claimed to have "had the board beaten until the river" and later still that he held pocket queens.
