Alex Keating, pictured at an event last year.

We found Alex Keating facing what looked to be a pot-sized bet of 45,000 on a completed board of {k-Spades}{j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{3-Spades}. The bet came from Robert Schulz on the button.

"I don't think I can fold this hand," Keating said. "I know you have a boat or have me outkicked."

"Can you at least promise me you're going to do something good with this money? At least promise me you won't do something bad like fund a terrorist organization or something."

Schulz cracked the barest hint of a smile.

"He smiled!" Keating exclaimed. "Look how happy he is, he knows he's getting this money."

Schulz covered his mouth with his hand and finally, Keating turned his attention to the dealer.

"Give this money to my friend Robert," he said, placing it in the center of the felt.

Schulz showed {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} and took the pot down.
