The Shape of Raymond Rahme

The hand itself was not all that noteworthy. In a somewhat small pot, with the board showing {9-Hearts} {10-Spades} {8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {K-Spades}, Raymond Rahme bet 3,000. His opponent called, prompting Rahme to table {A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} for two pair, kings and eights. It was no good; his opponent showed down {K-Clubs} {10-Clubs} 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.
