Right Prediction, Wrong Call for Kwak

jeffmcmillan • Level 22: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Kevin Kwak

Action was picked up on the turn with a board that read {6-Clubs}{a-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Phil Vera made a bet of 200,000 and Kevin Kwak called. The river came the {q-Hearts}. Vera bet 250,000.

Kwak started to talk it the hand out loud "This is top set isn't it" he said. "You always have top set here. Sick cooler" he thought and played with his chips as he shifted around in his chair. He continued "Top set right?" and nodded at Vera, attempting to get him to confirm that is what he had. After a few more moments, Kwak put in a stack of chips to call.

Sure enough Vera turned over the {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts} and Kwak angrily flung his {8-}{8-} into the muck and he got up from the table muttering to himself, despite his tablemates saying it was impressive that he called the hand aloud and that he even seriously considered folding at all.
