Julius Makes Great Laydown...But Wait....


Kyle Julius opened to 650,000 on the button with (what the graphics showed to be) {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and John Dibella called from the big blind with {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} to see a {9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop.

Both appeared to hit the the flop really well and Dibella checked to Julius who bet 525,000. Dibella, though, went with the check-raise to 1,425,000. Julius called, and both probably loved to see the {9-Spades} hit the turn. Dibella bet 1,600,000, Julius quickly called, and the {6-Clubs} spiked on the river.

Dibella's top pair with a flush draw turned into the nuts and he moved all in with the bigger stack.

"Well, you said you wouldn't bluff me," said Julius after a good amount of time in the tank, who laid down his trip nines.

However, just as the hand completed EPT commentator James Hartigan informed the viewers that Julius in fact held {K-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and not {K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}.
