Shamus • Level 31: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

Remi Castaignon raised to 250,000 from under the gun, and it folded around to Walid Bou Habib who called from the big blind. The flop came {8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. Bou Habib checked, Castaignon bet 325,000, and Bou Habib called.

The turn brought the {3-Diamonds} and a check from Bou Habib, and Castaignon checked as well. The river then brought a Broadway card — the {Q-Clubs} — and one more check from Bou Habib. Castaignon took the opening to push out a nearly pot-sized bet of 1.2 million.

Bou Habib paused about a half-minute, then asked the dealer to spread the pot full of chips and plaques about in order to get a better idea what was there. He waited a while longer, then finally checked his hand one last time before tossing the cards away.
