The hand itself was not all that noteworthy. In a somewhat small pot, with the board showing , Raymond Rahme bet 3,000. His opponent called, prompting Rahme to table for two pair, kings and eights. It was no good; his opponent showed down for two pair, kings and tens.
What made the hand noteworthy was the banter afterwards. Chris Moneymaker was very surprised that Rahme's opponent merely called that small river bet. "If I have king-ten there you're in bad shape," Moneymaker remarked. But Moneymaker didn't have king-ten. As a result Rahme still has 25,000 chips.
