"Start of a Great Story"

Chad_Holloway • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Pedro Baptista Martinho Cabeca opened for 8,500 from the cutoff and Francisco Benitez called from the button. Francois Billard, who was short stacked in the big blind, opted to call, and then he moved all in for his last 10,000 when the flop came down {4-Hearts}{8-Spades}{q-Spades}.

Cabeca folded, but Benitez called to put Billard at risk.

Benitez: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Billard: {5-Clubs}{4-Spades}

Billard was ahead with bottom pair, and it held after the {6-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {Q-Hearts} on the river.

"Start of a great story," Billard said with a smile.
