The dealer had just rushed away the board and Pierre Mothes was shipped a seizable pot even though his was only good enough for ace-king high on a queen-high board.
According to Mothes, he had three-bet preflop and continued for 2,500 on a flop with two spades. His opponent raised to 7,500 and Mothes called. The turn was checked and Mothes called a bet worth 17,000 on the river to get shown for a bluff gone wrong.
While Mothes chipped up, the trend for Ismail Kalkan went into the exact opposite direction. Facing the shove by Patricke Zehnder on the river, Kalkan reluctantly folded and was shown the for a set of tens.
