Jean Gets an Early Gift

zedmaster84 • Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

On the river of a board {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{7-Clubs}, Mikael Jean bet 3,000 and his opponent Gaetano Dell'Aera raised to 8,000. The Lebanese called and Dell'Aera shook his head and mucked. Both PokerStars Team Online's Katerina Malasidou and Ruben Visser, who were sitting in between the two, glanced over in surprise and the pot was shipped to Jean.

Malasidou herself had a tough start, too, as per her Twitter:
